$850,000 Fine Against Company and Owner/Director Signals Increased Risk under Occupational Health and Safety Act

April 15, 2024 | Luiza Vikhnovich , Jemma Lewis

The Ontario Court of Justice (Ottawa Region) recently accepted a guilty plea and joint submission on penalty, arising out of a workplace explosion in January 2022 that tragically killed six workers and left a seventh with catastrophic injuries. The employer, Eastway Tank, Pump & Meter (“Eastway”), was fined $600,000, while its owner and director, Neil Greene, was fined $80,000.  Both were also fined an additional 25% victim fine surcharge, amounting to a total fine of $850,000.
