Triple J Aggregates Limited, a Newfoundland company, is facing charges related to an employee who died in a quarry near St. John’s in September 2020, according to a report from CBC News.
The Conception Bay South firm is facing 11 occupational health and safety charges.
Among these, the company is accused of failing to ensure the safety of workers, ensuring all structures and machinery are in safe working order, failing to ensure safeguards were fitted on machinery to prevent workers from accessing dangerous points of operation, and providing sufficient training and supervision. The full charges were shared in a press release on Wednesday from Service N.L. – the province’s government division which oversees workplace health and safety.

The company is due to appear at provincial court in St. John’s on August 19, 2022.
