REGINA — A Saskatchewan company has been fined $56,000 after a worker sustained a serious injury.
Morsky Construction Ltd. pleaded guilty in Regina Provincial Court on Oct. 5 to one violation of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, 1996.
The company was fined for contravening clause 12(c) of the regulations which is being an employer at a place of employment and failing to provide any information, instruction, training and supervision necessary to protect the health and safety of workers at work, resulting in the serious injury of a worker.
The charges stem from an incident that occurred on March 11, 2021 in Regina, when a worker suffered serious injuries when the leading edge of a jump jeep fell on their foot, a Government of Saskatchewan release said.
A fine of $40,000 was imposed with a surcharge of $16,000 for a total amount of $56,000. One other charge was withdrawn.
