Prince Albert Company Charged with OHS Violation

On December 2, 2020, P.A. Fine Foods and Distributors Ltd. pleaded guilty in Regina Provincial Court to violating one count under occupational health and safety legislation.


Under The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, 1996, P.A. Fine Foods was charged for contravening clause 12(c) of the regulations (being an employer at a place of employment, fail in the provision of any information, instruction, training and supervision that is necessary to protect the health and safety of workers at work).


The company was fined $3,500 with a $1,400 surcharge, for a total of $4,900.



The charge stemmed from a workplace incident that occurred on November 9, 2018 in Regina, Saskatchewan. The incident transpired when a worker fell from a ladder.


Everyone is responsible to create and maintain a safe and healthy workplace. For employers, this includes having a written fall protection plan and ensuring all workers use a fall protection system where they may fall three metres or more.


The Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety works with employers and workers to eliminate workplace injuries and illnesses through education, inspections and prosecutions.
