Port of Dalhousie to be sentenced on Labour Code violations next month

The Port of Dalhousie will be sentenced next month on two violations under the Canada Labour Code.

Four charges were laid against the port after Richard Bernard was killed on the job in 2016.

The port pleaded guilty to failing to develop, implement, and monitor a program aimed at preventing workplace hazards, as well as failing to ensure equipment had a seatbelt or shoulder-type strap.

Two other charges are to be withdrawn at the time of sentencing on May 18th.
