Excerpts from the Ontario Government’s ‘Newsroom’
Highrise Window Technologies Inc., a Concord, Ont. company that makes windows for high rise buildings, was fined $160,000 on April 3, 2009 for a violation under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, after a worker was killed. On September 19, 2007, a worker was cutting, loading onto a cart, and moving cut glass from a cutting machine to a washing machine. One cart was overloaded, a rear castor on it broke off while in motion, and glass fell off the cart, pinning the worker between the fallen glass and the cutting machine.
