Two workers hurt: Regina steelmaker Evraz fined $935,000 for breaking safety rules

REGINA — A Regina steelmaker has been fined $935,000 for two serious workplace injuries that resulted from the company breaking Saskatchewan health and safety rules.

Evraz Inc. pleaded guilty on Feb. 9 in Regina provincial court.

The Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety says in one case a worker was pinned between a steel pipe and a steel plate on Jan. 24, 2019.

In the second case, less than a week later, a worker was hurt when a machine moved during a fire.

The ministry would not disclose the medical condition of the injured employees or whether they have returned to work.

Evraz Regina says it is the largest steel company in Western Canada and makes steel plate, coil, pipe, and oil- and gas-well tubing for the energy sector.
