A Georgetown business was fined in Milton court Friday for a violation of the Occupational Health and Safety Act that resulted in serious hand injuries to an employee last year. Justice Richard LeDressay fined Cooper-Standard Automotive Canada Ltd. $60,000 after the company pleaded guilty as an employer to failing to ensure the post-form rolling mill (a component on a production line that manufactures parts for jeep vehicles) was equipped with a guard or other device. The incident occurred on January 4, 2005 at the Georgetown plant when a worker was attempting to fix a problem with the rolling mill. The worker's hand became caught between the mill's two metal rollers, causing lacerations and crushing injuries to the worker's right hand and fingers. In addition to the fine, the court imposed a 25 per cent victim fine surcharge.
