Another Saskatchewan firm fined for lack of protective equipment

REGINA, Sask. – A woodworks company based in Regina has been ordered to pay a $2,800 fine, including $800 in surcharges, after being convicted in Regina Provincial Court of two occupational health and safety violations. According to a news release from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety, an occupational health officer from the Ministry inspected a worksite near Regina on June 2, 2016 and observed employees of NLF Woodworks Inc. working without the required fall-protection equipment or protective headwear. No one was injured, but the employer was charged with contravening sections 91 and 116(2) of the province’s oh&s regulations. NLF pleaded guilty in court on Oct. 4 of this year. Another employer, Kamineski Deptuck Holdings Ltd. in Saskatoon, was fined for similar offences the week before (COHSN, Oct. 10).
