Company Fined $100,000 After Worker Sustained Serious Injuries

Released on November 30, 2018

A Regina company pleaded guilty to one count under Occupational Health and Safety regulations in Esterhazy Provincial Court on November 27, 2018.

Associated Mining Construction, Inc. pleaded guilty to contravening clause 134(1)(b) of the regulations (being an employer, fail to ensure that workers are informed of any risk associated with, and trained in the safe use of a machine, resulting in the serious injury to a worker).

The company was fined $71,429 plus a surcharge of $28,571.  Two other charges were withdrawn.

The charge resulted from an incident that took place near Esterhazy on July 28, 2016.  A worker sustained serious head injuries after a structure tipped over, striking the worker in the head.

Employers are required to provide safe and healthy workplaces, and must provide information, training and experience necessary for employees to perform their jobs safely.  For more information about workplace health and safety, visit www.worksafesask.ca or contact an industry safety association.
