A report from the province’s ombudsman detailed a disregard for safety procedures by management and workers at a truck weigh station in Amherst, such as ignoring trucks that didn’t stop at the weigh scale. The report includes eight recommendations, including removing human resources responsibilities from unionized supervisors and creating policies and procedures for vehicle compliance. The Transport Minister says that he takes these concerns seriously and will address them.
