**Worker’s Fall Through Opening Results in $50,000 Fine In Guelph](http://news.ontario.ca/mol/en/2016/10/workers-fall-through-opening-results-in-50000-fine-in-guelph.html?utm_source=ondemand&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=p) **

October 7, 2016
GUELPH, ON - Nartech Metal Products Inc.,    a Windsor-based automotive parts manufacturer with a plant in Guelph,    pleaded guilty and has been fined $50,000 after a worker fell through an    open scrap chute and suffered injuries as a result.
On March 27, 2015, a young worker was    assisting another worker with changing a die on a mechanical press machine    that is used to shape metal. While unbolting the top portion of the    die, the young worker stepped into an open scrap chute and fell about 20 feet    onto a scrap conveyor. The worker suffered a broken bone as a result of the    fall.
A Ministry of Labour investigation found    that the press machine has six scrap chutes, which are flush with the    floor. When the press was in run mode, the scrap chutes at the press were    guarded by interlocking doors which, if opened, would stop the press.    However, when the press was shut down for repair work or die changes, the    scrap chutes were not closed or guarded. There was no signage to warn    workers of the hazards of the open scrap chutes, and workers had not been    trained or instructed to close the chutes when working on the press.
Section 25(1)(c) of the Occupational    Health and Safety Act (OHSA) requires an employer to ensure that the    measures and procedures prescribed by the act and its regulations are    carried out at the workplace. Section 15(a) of the Regulation for    Industrial Establishments - Ontario Regulation 851 - prescribes that a    cover on an opening in a floor, roof or other surface shall be secured in    place. The defendant failed as an employer to ensure that the measures and    procedures prescribed by Regulation 851 were carried out at the workplace,    contrary to the OHSA.
The sentence was imposed by Justice of    the Peace Michael Cuthbertson in Guelph court on October 7, 2016.
In addition to the fine, the court    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.

What about a public apology from you for my Wife! You still haven’t admitted you falsely accused her.

Roy, its about time the governments have stop passing new regulations and enforced the ones they turned a blind eye to at the taxpayers expense.
All my men were enrolled on the CSST. No cash, No PPE…Go home.
If a man or woman is willing to work for you, then you must oblige them a safety net in case of an accident.

I was ridiculed by everyone I knew working construction. About 7 contractors. “You am crazy for putting all your men on CSST” they told me. Just hire individuals on welfare of employment insurance.
No sir.
If they work they must pay to reap the benefits of our social system.

Note: One false accident sent me on a real look into how the system operates though. After ten years and much lost time and money lost I prevailed. System was not well managed nor fare to the employer back then.
I fended off 3 false claims during that time by learning how the system worked. I learned quickly how to shutdown false claims. Write a worker’s employee’s agreement/contract to avoid loop hopes in the system.
Pass it by a lawyer and all the best.
Thanks Roy.

It’s like you don’t even know the man, Len.

Although some may agree, while others not, and I am personally not speaking on Roy’s behalf, nor getting involved picking sides, nor attempting to put Roy’s well founded facts and words on this thread to appease what appears to be frustration for you concerning your pride, or achilles in your heel…, I for one, knowing Mr. Roy Cooke senior, for the amount of time I have known him for both on and off the message board, am quite certain, no actually quite posative, I say this with sound resolution and stern conviction, that over the course of time and millennium will consider what transpired using clear guided reflection, very sound reasoning, as well as clear and concise deduction, all combined though due process, being courteous in matters such as this as he always has been, as well as seeking counsel with Char during such times, will reach a fair minded overall consensus on what was posted, how he replied, and come to a sobering conclusion and consensus so he can be, as well as feel, satisfied with his answer.
I hope that helps.
