Contractors Fined More than $16,000 for Fall Protection Violations

Two contractors were fined more than $16,000 for violating the OHS Act. The owner of one company was convicted of two safety violations and fined $15,400 for an incident in which two workers fell from a platform after it collapsed at a construction site. One of the workers was seriously injured. In the other case, the contractor pleaded guilty to failing to use a fall protection system and was fined $840 after an Occupational Health officer saw workers on the roof of a house construction site without fall protection [Keith Arlt and S.J.R.
