博客Post #1247 – Second Offence results in $90,000 Fine for Woodbridge Window Manufacturer

Excerpt from the government of Ontario’s ‘Newsroom’

由Ontario Woodbridge的铝制窗户设计有限公司雇用的工人在试图从冲床压力机中取出一块铝时,在试图取下一块铝时接受了临界伤害。

2018年6月28日,440韩仑路地的AWD工人使用冲床剪切铝木窗框架。一块铝被卡在机器里。

工人试图删除这种卡片。在拉动部件的同时,机器的顶部模具部分向下移动。工人受伤了伤害。

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.

铝窗设计有限公司在纽马克斯的省犯罪法院被罚款,由和平Rhonda Shousterman章程被罚款90,000美元;皇冠律师特里黄。

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。

My opinion

The law(s) in contravention:

铝窗设计有限公司被判有违反安大略省工业“规定851/90,第24条缔约国,

“如果机器或主要动器或传输设备具有可能危及任何工人的安全性的暴露的移动部分,则机器或主要动器或传输设备应配备并由防止访问移动的其他装置或其他设备配备和保护部分。”

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!
