A Prince George, B.C., company has been fined for a workplace death in Saskatchewan.
A worker died after an incident on Sept. 8, 2015, at a lumber mill near Big River, Sask.
The 31-year-old man suffered blunt force trauma from an object thrown by a wood chipper while he was carrying out maintenance on the equipment.
The company pleaded guilty to the charge in January, and a fine of $87,500 was affirmed on March 21 following an appeal by the Crown.
A second charge against Carrier Forest Products was stayed in court.
