A Warman company was fined $17,500 after being found guilty of one count under Occupational Health and Safety regulations in Saskatoon Provincial Court on March 21, 2019.

Norred Contracting Ltd. was found guilty of contravening clause 124(1)(b) of the regulations (fail to ensure that any opening or hole in a floor, roof or other work surface into which a worker could step or fall is provided with a guardrail and toeboard, thereby cause serious injury to a worker).

The company was fined $12,500 plus a surcharge of $5,000.  They were found not guilty of one other charge.
