Regina Company Fined for OHS Violations

Released on October 13, 2017

A Regina company pleaded guilty to two violations of occupational health and safety regulations in Regina Provincial Court on October 4.

NLF Woodworks Inc. pleaded guilty to:
  • contravening section 91 of the regulations (fail to ensure that workers wear approved industrial protective headwear); and
  • contravening subsection 116(2) of the regulations (fail to ensure that workers use a fall protection system at a work area where a worker may fall three metres or more).
The company was fined $2,800, which includes a $1,000 fine and $400 surcharge on each count.

Charges resulted from a worksite inspection on June 2, 2016, near Regina.  An Occupational Health Officer observed workers who were not using fall protection or personal protective equipment.  No one was injured.

Falls from heights can cause serious injuries and are easy to prevent.  To learn more about fall prevention, business owners and employees are encouraged to contact WorkSafe Saskatchewan or their industry safety association for recommendations on equipment and training.
