A judge
here has fined a Nepean-based construction company $60,000 after a worker was
seriously injured.



On
Nov. 19, 2007, a construction worker was on the
second floor of a new housing project at Block 3,
Arrowglass Way, in Orleans when he fell through an opening in
the floor to the basement while walking backwards carrying plywood.



He suffered severe head and shoulder injuries.



A Ministry of Labour investigation found that the company was not using
adequate protective covering or guardrails to protect workers from openings in
the work area.



FDM Capital Construction Ltd. has pleaded guilty to violating a section of the
Ontario regulation for construction
projects contrary to the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
