A company based in Carlyle, Sask. has been fined $35,000 after a worker was seriously injured on the job.
Carlyle Contracting Services Ltd. pleaded guilty to one violation of Saskatchewan’s occupational health and safety regulations in Carlyle provincial court last week.
The company admitted it failed to ensure workers using, maintaining or dismantling rigging were trained in safe rigging practices, resulting in the serious injury of a worker.
The charge stemmed from an incident that took place on May 11, 2016 near Carlyle. A worker suffered a serious spinal injury after a chain holding an l-beam broke, causing the beam to strike the worker on the back.
The company was fined $25,000, plus a $10,000 surcharge. Three additional charges were stayed in court.
