Regina Company Fined $14,000 for Violating OHS Regulations

Released on December 21, 2020

On October 14, 2020, Josh Senger Construction Inc. pleaded guilty in Carlyle Provincial Court to violating one count under The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations (OHS), 1996.

The Regina company was fined for contravening clause 12(c) of the OHS regulations (being an employer, fail to provide any information, instruction, training and supervision that is necessary to protect the health and safety of workers at work, resulting in the serious injury to a worker).

On December 11, 2020, the Court imposed a fine of $10,000, along with a $4,000 surcharge, for a total fine of $14,000.

The violation stemmed from an incident that occurred on September 20, 2018 near Wawota, Saskatchewan.  A load of material fell from the forks of a skid steer, injuring a worker.

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 training and resources, visit www.worksafesask.ca or contact an industry safety association.

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