A Kingsville Company Fined $50,000 After Worker Critically Injured

A Kingsville company has been fined for a workplace accident.

Liqui-Force Services pleaded guilty in a Chatham court and was fined $50,000 on Tuesday, February 27.

On February 28, 2017, a worker at a worksite in Chatham was critically injured after being pulled into moving traffic by a cable.

Liqui-Force operates a no-dig, pipeline rehab service.

It had been contracted to do relining work on municipal sewer piping under O'Neil St. in Chatham when a cable that was unwinding was caught and pulled by a passing vehicle.

The worker, who suffered life threatening injuries, was holding one end of the cable and was flung backwards onto the road.
