Excerpt from the Government of Ontario’s ‘Newsroom’

Asia Pulp & Paper (Canada) Ltd., a Toronto manufacturer of pulp and paper products, was fined $60,000 on June 09, 2009 for a single violation under the Occupational Health and Safety (OHSA) after a worker was seriously injured.

On November 5, 2007, at the company’s Brampton facility, a worker was loading skids onto a truck parked at a loading bay. While the worker was on a forklift inside the truck, the truck rolled forward about five metres from the loading bay. The worker reversed off the truck and fell, with the forklift, to the ground below.
