Grader Operator Fined For Causing Serious Workplace Injury In Saskatchewan

Released on April 30, 2019

A man from Archerwill has been fined for an occupational health and safety violation that resulted in a serious injury to a worker.

On April 16, Kenneth Allgrove was fined $2,800 for violating one count of occupational health and safety legislation.

Estevan Provincial Court found him guilty in February of contravening subsection 164(3) of the regulations (being an operator of a unit of powered mobile equipment, fail to ensure that a unit of powered mobile equipment shall not move or cause to be moved any load or part of the equipment when a worker may be endangered by that movement, resulting in the serious injury of a worker).

He was ordered to pay a fine of $2,000 plus a surcharge of $800.

In September of 2016, a worker was seriously injured near Estevan after a grader backed into a truck, which was then pushed over the worker.
