The Ontario-based company pleaded guilty to one count under The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations in Regina court on Jan. 27.
Evraz pleaded guilty to “failing to ensure an effective safeguard where a worker may contact a dangerous moving part of a machine, remaining in place at all times, resulting in a serious injury to a worker.”
The initial fine is $230,000 plus a surcharge of $92,000. Another charge to the company was withdrawn.
The worker was injured on Feb. 7, 2018, after stepping on to a turn roll motor.
