Alberta Company Fined $100,000, Worker Sustained Serious Injuries

Released on October 5, 2018

An Edmonton company pleaded guilty to one count under Occupational Health and Safety regulations in Regina Provincial Court on October 2, 2018.

324007 Alberta Ltd., operating as Heartland Livestock Services, pleaded guilty to contravening clause 12(a) of the regulations (being an employer at a place of employment failed in the provision and maintenance of plant, systems of work and working environments that ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety and welfare at work of the employer’s workers, resulting in a serious injury to a worker).

The company was fined $71,429 plus a surcharge of $28,571.

Charges resulted from an incident on November 9, 2016, at a worksite near Lloydminster, Saskatchewan.  A worker sustained serious facial injuries after being struck in the face by a metal gate while trying to get a heifer into a holding pen.

Everyone is responsible for workplace health and safety, with employers having the most care and control in the workplace.  Out-of-province companies operating in Saskatchewan must comply with Saskatchewan’s occupational health and safety regulations.

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