Klatt said another co-worker had removed two pins from the Pilosio cart, which allowed the equipment to pivot more freely into tight spaces, before it fell on July 21, 2016. Although workers often removed the pins from the cart — similar to a scaffold on wheels used to hold tables — it was always a “two man job,” Klatt testified at the trial for the men’s employer, Alberta-based subcontractor Banff Constructors Ltd., and the cart supplier, Pilosio Canada Inc.
Both companies are charged under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, accused of being liable in Ndayishimiye’s death by failing to provide proper training, failing to arrange for the safe use of trolleys and, in Pilosio’s case, failing to ensure the safety of supplied equipment when used as instructed.
A KIDDERMINSTER restaurant has been told to improve their cleaning following a food hygiene inspection.
The Three Shires Café and Restaurant on Lower Mill Street received a ‘one’ food hygiene rating after an inspection last month.
The report says that there “must be a written cleaning schedule” included within the businesses’ food safety management system.It states that the seal to a freezer needs more “regular and thorough cleaning” and that “soap is required for the wash basin.”
A Victorian father who has a life expectancy of only five to 10 years if he doesn’t get a lung transplant soon says the new national mandatory limit for silica dust exposure doesn’t go far enough and that the decision will “cost lives”.
Michael Nolan, 33, is a former stonemason who was diagnosed in March this year with silicosis and is on a waiting list for a transplant. He wanted the present dust exposure limit, of 0.1 milligrams per cubic metre over an eight-hour shift, dramatically cut to save lives.
The Cancer Council of Australia, unions and Victorian state government wanted the limit to be set at 0.02 milligrams per cubic metre, which would make the nation a world leader.
