Prince Albert Employer Fined After Worker Seriously Injured

Released on September 10, 2018

Bradley Davidson-Vermette of Prince Albert has been fined a total of $4,900 for violating Occupational Health and Safety legislation which resulted in serious injury to a worker.

On September 6, 2018, Davidson-Vermette pleaded guilty to contravening section 134(2) of the regulations (being an operator of a machine, before starting a machine, fail to ensure that neither the operator nor any other worker will be endangered by starting the machine, resulting in a serious injury to a worker).

He was ordered to pay a fine of $3,500 with a $1,400 surcharge.

The offence occurred on June 2, 2017 near Wakaw.  While removing debris from a conveyor belt, the conveyor system was started up causing the worker to fall approximately four metres or 12 feet.  The worker suffered broken bones in his arm, pelvis and hip as well as fractures to his ribs and spine.

While everyone is responsible to create and maintain a safe and healthy workplace, employers carry the greatest responsibility because of their authority and control over the worksite.

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