GTA COMPANY FINED $85,000

A Toronto-based company has been fined $85,000 after a worker suffered critical injuries at a facility in Brampton.

 

IKO Industries — which manufactures roofing products — pleaded guilty to a charge under the Occupational Health and Safety Act in connection with the June 2016 incident.

 

Court heard the worker was one of two who had been told to remove and replace a valve on a hopper that was believed to be empty.

 

However, the hopper was full of heated material used to make asphalt roofing products, which poured out onto the worker.
