Pedigree Poultry has been fined a total of $46,000 after it pleaded guilty to violating Saskatchewan’s Occupational Health and Safety Regulations.

On July 10, 2021, a worker suffered serious injury after their foot became entangled within a horizontal auger system at a worksite near Regina Beach.

As a result of these charges, the court imposed a fine of $32,857.14, with a surcharge of $13,142.86.

Pedigree was fined for contravening clause 3-1 (a) of the regulations (being an employer, fail to provide and maintain plant, systems of work and working environments that ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of the employers workers, resulting in a serious injury to a worker).
