Orbit Garant Drilling Services Inc. has been found guilty and fined $200,000 after a worker was killed.
On June 25th 2014, at the St. Andrews Holloway-Holt mine sites east of Timmins, a worker was killed by a falling tree as he was exiting a bulldozer. The company was found guilty of failing as an employer to take every precaution responsible in the circumstances for the protection of a worker.
The court also imposed a 25 per cent victim fine surcharge by the Provincial Offences Act. The surcharge is given to a special provincial government fund to assist victims of crime.
