Former Picton cement producer fined in workplace injury incident

Former Picton cement producer Essroc Canada Inc. was fined $50,000 related to a workplace injury last spring.

On April 29, 2016, a worker was critically injured when his pant leg got caught on a rotating flag which pulled his foot and leg into machinery.

The screw conveyor was shut down and responders were sent to the worker’s aid. The worker sustained multiple injuries to the foot and leg and required hospitalization.

The Ministry of Labour’s investigation found the rotating shaft with the metal flag was not guarded to prevent access to the moving part.

Justice of the Peace Ernie Parsons sentenced the company to a $50,000 fine in Picton court on May 5, 2017. The court also imposed a 25-per-cent victim fine surcharge as required by the Provincial Offences Act. The surcharge is credited to a special provincial government fund to assist victims of crime.
