Meat processing company fined after employee injured on the job in Mississauga
A meat processing company in Mississauga has been fined after an employee was injured on the job.
On October 12, while the employee was cleaning a hot dog packing machine, they removed the interlocking guards from the front of the machine to clean any excess plastic packaging. While they were attempting to remove excess plastic, the machine turned on and injured the employee.
The employee was then taken to hospital for treatment of their injuries.
A subsequent Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development inspection determined the machine was not locked-out properly when the employee was working on it.
On November 10, Justice of the Peace Gordon Chaput fined Erie Meat Products Ltd. $50,000 following a plea of guilty.
