The company was fined for contravening clause 9-2 (2) (a) of the regulations (being an employer or contractor, fail to ensure that workers use a fall protection system at a temporary or permanent work area if a worker may fall three metres or more, resulting in the serious injury of a worker) As a result, the Court imposed a fine of $17,857.14 with a surcharge of $7,142.86, for a total amount of $25,000.

Three other charges were withdrawn.

The charges stemmed from an incident that occurred on July 25, 2022, near Hague, Saskatchewan, when a worker was seriously injured when they fell to the ground after removing slings from a set of trusses.

The Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety works with employers and workers to eliminate workplace injuries and illnesses through education, inspections and prosecutions.
