Mississauga Company Fined After Worker Sustains Critical Injuries
A Mississauga company has been charged after a worker sustained critical injuries during a workplace accident.
The Ontario government recently announced that the company, Pro Renovations Solutions, was subcontracted to repair a Peterborough apartment.
During the repair, a worker fell from the roof of a 10-storey building.
On Nov. 1, 2016 at the Clonsilla Avenue building, several employees were setting up a swing stage when one of the workers went to the roof to bring them a wrench. The worker, who had no form of fall protection, lost balance at the edge of the roof and fell to the ground, sustaining critical injuries.
Companies are required by provincial law to provide adequate protection from work-related injury, including a fall.
In a ruling on Monday, Justice Peter J. Hiscox found Pro Renovations Solutions did not meet its obligation under the Occupational Health and Safety Act and fined the company $60,000.
The court also imposed a 25-per cent victim fine surcharge.
