A Saskatoon company has pleaded guilty for violating a count under Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, resulting in the death of one of its workers.
Sommer Green Forages was charged with contravening subsection 139(1) of the regulations, which states: “Being an employer, failed to ensure that before a worker undertakes the maintenance, repair, test or adjustment of machine other than a power tool, the machine is locked out and remains locked out during that activity if not doing so would put the worker at risk, resulting in the death of a worker.”
The company was fined $50,000 plus a $20,000 surcharge. Three other charges were stayed.
