A Mississauga, Ontario concrete manufacturing company has pleaded guilty to one count under OHS safety legislation.
Lafarge Canada made the plea Monday in Saskatoon Provincial Court.
Lafarge was fined $10,000, plus a $4,000 victim fine surcharge.
The charge arose out of an incident in Saskatoon on January 13, 2014.
Employees were loading large pieces of concrete into a crushing machine, in preparation for recycling concrete and the machine became jammed.
After the workers opened it to clear the jam, they had trouble getting the lid closed again..
The boom of the trackhoe then swung into the guardrail of a catwalk where an employee was standing.
He fell to the ground, but suffered only minor injuries.
Lack of proper safety training is one of the most common reasons workers are injured or killed on the job.
Under OHS legislation, employers must provide workers with all training required to perform the task.
