Saskatchewan company fined $126K for serious worker injury

SASKATOON, SASK. – On Dec. 8, 2022, King Stud Contracting Ltd. pleaded guilty in Saskatoon Provincial Court regarding one violation of the province’s occupational health and safety regulations.

King Stud Contracting Ltd. was fined $90,000 with a $36,000 surcharge for a total amount of $126,000.

The company was fined for contravention of subsection 194(3) of the regulations, which is “an employer fail(ing) to ensure that a worker working from a work platform mounted on a forklift on which a worker may be raised or lowered or required or permitted to work, uses a personal fall arrest system, resulting in the serious injury of a worker.”

Four other charges were stayed.

The charges stemmed from a Feb. 19, 2021 incident in Saskatoon, Sask., when a worker suffered serious injuries when they fell from a work platform.
