A Saskatoon dealership has been fined $35,000 after a worker was injured on the job.
In a news release Thursday, the province said Jubilee Ford Sales Ltd. pleaded guilty in Saskatoon Provincial Court on Aug. 18 to one count under occupational health and safety legislation.
The charges stem from an incident on Jan. 25, 2015, where a worker was trying to repair an overhead door and an anchor bracket became loose.
The door came down on the worker’s forearm, causing several fractures.
Jubilee Ford was fined $35,000 for the incident. Two other charges were stayed.
“Employers must ensure employees are provided with all training necessary to safely complete a job,” the province stated in the news release.
“A worker is considered competent when the worker possesses knowledge, experience and training to perform a specific duty safely. Employers have an onus to prove that workers have been trained.”
