Seafood Plant Fined $4,000 after Worker Is Pinned by Truck

Workers were unloading crab from a truck trailer to a loading bay. The trailer shifted, creating a gap between it and the loading bay. So a worker asked the driver to reposition the truck. When the driver pulled forward, a platform and worker fell more than four feet to the ground. Unaware his co-worker was behind the trailer, the driver backed up and pinned him, resulting in fractured ribs and a punctured lung. The seafood plant pleaded guilty to failing to provide information, instruction, training and supervision necessary to ensure workers’ health and safety and was fined $4,000 [Edmond Gagnon Ltd., Govt. News Release, May 17, 2013].
