More investigation into Quinte Waste Solutions incident

The Ontario Ministry of Labour has made one order but is continuing its investigation into an incident at Quinte Waste Solutions that sent one man to hospital earlier this month.

According to the Ministry, a worker was attempting to clear refuse from the feed-end of a running conveyor on April 6 when his arm got stuck in the machine.

The man was taken to hospital with a fractured arm.

A spokesperson for the Ministry told Quinte News Monday that “it ordered HGC Management to acquaint workers with the hazard of accessing a specified area of machinery, and that has been done.”

Meanwhile the Ministry of Labour is continuing its investigation into the incident.
