Fatality in Scarborough Work Yard Results in $265,000 Fine

The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) was fined $265,000 after a worker was crushed between a work car and a pick-up truck when the work car was being moved. The court also imposed a 25-per-cent victim fine surcharge as required by the Provincial Offences Act.

The defendant failed to take the reasonable precaution of providing a trained and qualified SRT work car monitor to observe the movement of the work car, while in direct communication with the work car operator to ensure the work car did not make contact with workers, vehicles or equipment. This was an offence under Section 25(2)(h) of the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
