Failing to Report Workplace Injury Results in Fine for Saskatchewan Company

Released on June 19, 2018

A Regina company recently pleaded guilty to one count under Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) regulations in Regina Provincial Court on June 12, 2018.

Numbered company 101101469 Saskatchewan Ltd. of Regina pleaded guilty to contravening clause 8(1)(b) of the regulations (fail to give notice to the division as soon as is reasonably possible of every accident at a place of employment that required a worker to be admitted to a hospital as an in-patient for a period of 72 hours or more).

The company was fined $2,100, which included a $1,500 fine and $600 surcharge.

Charges were laid after a worker sustained injuries to his back and wrists and was taken to hospital on August 3, 2017.

Employers and contractors are required to notify OHS if a worker sustains an injury that requires them to be in the hospital for three days or longer.  The notice must contain the name and apparent injuries of the injured or deceased worker, contact information of the employer, the date, time and location of the incident, and a description of what happened.

To report an incident to the Occupational Health and Safety Division, please call 1-800-567-SAFE (7233).
