A Manitoba corporation was
recently fined $52,650 for failing to provide appropriate equipment to
manoeuvre and hold an angle iron in place while workers welded it, failing to
comply with a Stop Work Order to cease and not allow workers to use a Hiab 150
Boom Truck, and failing to notify the Workplace Safety and Health Branch by the
fastest means of communication available of a serious incident where a worker
suffered serious injuries.
The director of the above
corporation was also fined $12,550 for knowingly obstructing a safety and
health officer engaged in the exercise or performance of his or her powers or
duties, by instructing a worker to mislead a safety and health officer engaged
in the exercise of his or her duties.
A second Manitoba employer was
recently fined $42,252 for failing to develop and implement safe work
procedures for the use and/or operation of a Klaisler Rolsplicer truss splicer
in the workplace.
Ensuring workers are trained to
perform their duties safely, including understanding their rights and
responsibilities, is an important part of preventing injuries.
