The court fined a company an additional $10,000 for failing to pay a safety penalty for OHS violations. The original $90,000 creative sentence was imposed on the company after a worker was run over by a bobcat as he was exiting it and suffered serious injuries. The judge said the company hadn’t show due diligence in attempting to comply with the court order on its sentence. The company, which has since ceased operation, closed its bank account last year. But it made it a priority to pay other creditors, noted the court [Steve’s Oilfield Services (Edson) Ltd., Aug. 8, 2011].
