A local roofing company has been fined $50,000 for a workplace accident that took place last year in Sault Ste. Marie.
An employee with Lakehead Roofing and Metal Cladding Limited failed to shorten his safety line when he went to help two other workers on another part of the roof. A concrete slab broke underfoot, and the worker fell 14 metres before the fall arrest system engaged.
He suffered serious leg injuries.
The company pleaded guilty to failing to ensure the fall arrest system was arranged properly.
