Blog Post #166 – Pack All Manufacturing And Directors Fined $65,000 Total After Young Worker Injured

Excerpt from the Government of Ontario’s ‘Newsroom’

Pack All Manufacturing Inc., a producer of polystyrene products, was fined $55,000 on November 19, 2009, for a violation under the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) after a worker was injured. Directors Micheal Abdulnour and Emile Abdulnour were also fined $5,000 each.


Pack All Manufacturing Inc. was found guilty after trial of failing, as an employer, to ensure that the hopper was guarded to prevent access to its pinch point. Directors Micheal Abdulnour and Emile Abdulnour were both found guilty of failing, as directors, to take all reasonable care in the circumstances.

The fines were imposed by Justice of the Peace Brian Mackey. In addition to the fines, the court imposed a 25-per-cent victim fine surcharge, as required by the Provincial Offences Act. The surcharge is credited to a special provincial government fund to assist victims of crime.

My opinion


Pack All Manufacturing Inc. was convicted for a contravention of section 25 of the Ontario ‘Industrial’ regulation 851/90 which states,



The MOL works and designs their investigation as ‘Compliance’ investigation where a company may look towards a ‘Liability’ type of investigation.

合规调查,研究和定位all aspects of the faults and causes of an incident/accident and attempt to locate any contravention of the AC T or appropriate regulations.

责任调查 - 公司可能会采取措施采取措施,以减少损失/事故/事件的责任风险。


Preventative Investigation — A H&S program greatly benefits from a ‘Preventative’ investigation. This should be ongoing, looking for the possible accident causes and recommend corrective action. This type of investigation examines the same evidence but uses the information to consider what organizational systems may have failed.

It is my opinion that the two directors were oblivious of their responsibilities under the law and were found wanton. They were very lucky not to have had added section 32 of the OHSA which states,

“Every director and every officer of a corporation shall take all reasonable care to ensure that the corporation complies with,


They sure did not read the relevant section of the industrial regulations or they would have known their responsibilities and would have handled themselves accordingly.
