A Manitoba employer was recently
fined $31,250 for failing to provide, so far as reasonably practicable, such
information, instruction, training, supervision, and facilities to its workers;
failing to ensure that one of its machines used in the workplace was
safeguarded, to prevent it’s worker from coming into contact with moving parts;
and failing to ensure the presence of a stopping device on one of its machines
