Supervisor and Employer Fined in Worker’s Fall from Roof


A worker was seriously injured after he went onto a roof to move a hoist. His leg got caught in the hoist as it was being lowered over the roof’s edge and he fell two stories to the ground. The employer pleaded guilty to failing to ensure workers use fall protection when required and that they’re sufficiently and competently supervised. The court fined it $7,000. A supervisor also pleaded guilty to a safety violation and was fined $2,100 [Clark Roofing Regina Ltd. and Harold Vincent, Govt. News Release, Feb. 4, 2015].
