Moose Jaw Company Fined for Workplace Injury

Released on January 19, 2018


On January 10, 2018, Rocksteady Builders Inc. of Moose Jaw pleaded guilty in Swift Current Provincial Court to one count under Occupational Health and Safety legislation.

The company was fined $10,000 with a $4,000 surcharge for contravening clause 116(2)(a) of the regulations by failing to ensure that workers use a fall protection system at a work area where a worker may fall three metres or more, resulting in a serious injury to a worker.  One additional charge was stayed.

Charges stem from an incident that occurred near Lucky Lake, Saskatchewan on April 8, 2016, when a worker fell 27 feet through the roof of a structure causing him to suffer fractures to his ankle and forearm.

Everyone is responsible to create and maintain a safe and healthy workplace.  For employers, this includes having a written fall protection plan and ensuring all workers use a fall protection system where they may fall three metres or more.

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