Excerpts from the Ontario Government â€˜Newsroomâ€™
IMT Corporation, a metal forging company, was fined $60,000 on February 4, 2010, for a violation of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) that caused an injury to a worker.
On March 11, 2009, a worker at the company’s Port Colborne facility was greasing a die machine. The worker accidentally stepped on a pedal that activated the machine. The die descended on the worker’s forearm and crushed it.
A Ministry of Labour investigation found that the machine had not been locked out.
