Construction Company Fined $20,000 After Worker Injured in N.W.T.

A construction company has been fined $20,000 almost two years after a worker was injured in the Northwest Territories.

Arctic Canada Construction Ltd. pleaded guilty Friday to a single count under the territory’s Safety Act.

The fine is to be paid to the worker’s protection fund, as well as a $3,000 surcharge.

In April 2021, a worker in Fort Simpson was thrown from the basket of a telehandler to the ground after outriggers meant to stabilize the machine were not used.

A year later, the Workers’ Safety and Compensation Commission of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut laid seven charges against the company.

Six of those charges were withdrawn through the plea agreement.
