Husky Oil Operations Limited Fined $100,000 for OHS Violation

Released on September 21, 2017

Husky Oil Operations Limited of Calgary has pleaded guilty to one occupational health and safety violation.

The company was fined $100,000 in Lloydminster Provincial Court on September 18 for contravening subsection 133(6) of the regulations (being an employer, where there is or may be a hazard to a worker from traffic at a place of employment other than a public highway, failed to develop and implement a traffic control plan to protect the worker for traffic hazards resulting in the serious injury of a worker).

The amount includes a $71,429 fine and a $28,571 surcharge.

One additional charge was withdrawn in court.

The charge stemmed from an incident that took place on August 24, 2015. A worker was injured after being hit by a truck at Husky Oil Operations Limited’s Lloydminster sand disposal facility. 

Workplace injuries and illnesses are preventable. All workplaces must identify and address potential risks and hazards. Safety plans must be developed, and all employees must be provided with information and training to work safely.
