WorkSafeBC fines construction companies

WorkSafeBC fined two construction companies for safety violations at worksites in Prince George during April.

Inner Circle Construction was issued a $2,844.47 penalty on April 22 after an inspector found workers without personal fall protection despite being near the edge of an open elevator shaft on a partially-sheeted fourth floor of a residential building, exposing them to a 11.6-metre (38-foot) fall. A guardrail was in place but there was a gap in the area where they were working.
