Excerpt from the government of Ontario’s ‘Newsroom’
An inspector from the Ministry of Labour attended at the scene and determined that the punch press was a machine with an exposed moving part that endangered the safety of a worker and was not guarded by a guard or other device that prevented access to the moving part. Specifically, the die section of the punch press was not guarded to prevent worker access.
Accordingly, AWD failed as an employer to ensure that the measures and procedures required by section 24 of规定851.（这Industrial Establishments Regulation) were carried out in a workplace, contrary to section 25(1)(c) of theOccupational Health and Safety Act.
In 2014, the company had been convicted of an offence under the same subsection of the Regulation and was fined $75,000 for that conviction.
The court also imposed a 25-per-cent victim fine surcharge as required by the省级罪行法案。附加费被归功于特殊省政府基金，以协助犯罪受害者。
The law(s) in contravention:
This is contrary to the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) section 25, subsection 1(c) which states,
“An employer shall ensure that,
(c) the measures and procedures prescribed are carried out in the workplace.”
One would believe that Aluminum Window Designs Ltd. would have re-designed their equipment to ensure compliance to the ‘Machine Guarding’ section of the ‘Industrial’ regulation. Now they have failed twice!
