Workplace Injury Results In $40,000 Fine For Alberta Company

Released on May 27, 2020

On May 20, 2020, Boulevard Real Estate Equities Ltd. pled guilty in the Saskatoon Provincial Court for violating one count under The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, 1996.

The Calgary company pled guilty to contravening clause 12(a) of the regulations (being an employer, fail to comply with the duties of an employer at a place of employment including: the provision and maintenance of a plant, systems of work and working environments that ensure, as far as reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of the employer’s workers, resulting in the injury of a worker).

Three other charges were stayed.

The company was fined $28,571 with a $11,429 surcharge, for a total of $40,000.

This charge stemmed from an incident that occurred on November 28, 2017, in Saskatoon, where a worker fell while lifting a water heater, causing it to land on the worker and injure their left leg.

Everyone is responsible for workplace health and safety.  Out-of-province companies operating in Saskatchewan must comply with Saskatchewan’s legislation.
