ABC Interior Systems fined $50,000 in injury to worker in Etobicoke

TORONTO

ABC Interior Systems Inc., a North York, Ont. company that produced plastic auto parts using injection and blow moulding, was fined $50,000 for a violation under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, after a worker was injured.

On Feb. 9, 2009, a worker was working at the company’s Etobicoke, Ont. plant, where parts were assembled and spray painted. The worker was working indoors near a loading door. Outdoors, a lift-truck operator was bringing in three stacks of large plastic containers into the plant.

The operator was attempting to secure the third, and final, stack of containers on a forklift when the stack became unbalanced due to a buildup of snow and ice. The stack tipped and crashed into the loading door, injuring the worker inside.

A Ministry of Labour investigation found that the company failed to keep the ground in the area clear of accumulated ice and snow.
