Canadian Company Fined $22K for Arc Flash Injury

REGINA, CANADA – A Saskatchewan company has been fined more than $22,000 for an arc flash explosion that seriously burned a worker.

Diversified Electric pleaded guilty to two charges under occupational health and safety rules.

The company didn’t ensure the worker was properly protected while working near an exposed energized electrical conductor.

It also didn’t supervise the work properly.

The employee was seriously burned at a work site in Saskatoon in July 2008.
