Workplace fined $120K

A manufacturer in Grand Forks was fined more than $120,000 last month after a worker was injured on the job.

Roxul Inc. was fined $122,444.55 by WorkSafeBC on Dec. 14, after an incident where a "worker's arms were caught between the heat drum and tension roller" of a machine, which resulted in an injury, a penalty summary showed.

The extent of the employee's injuries are not known. The incident occurred on Aug. 4, according to a post-incident report provided to Castanet.

"The firm failed to ensure machinery was effectively safeguarded and locked out to protect workers. These were repeated and high-risk violations," the penalty summary from WorkSafeBC stated.

Further information in the post-incident report showed that Roxul has complied with three orders that were issued by WorkSafeBC as a result of the workplace injury.
