Ministry of Labour investigated the incident and concluded, based on the evidence gathered, that Algoma Tubes did commit the offence of failing, as an employer, to ensure that a worker working on, or near, live exposed parts of electrical installations, equipment or conductors, used rubber gloves, mats, shields and other protective equipment and procedures adequate to ensure protection from electrical shock and burns while performing the work. This was contrary to section 42.1(2) of Ontario regulation 851.
An Agreed Statement of Facts read into the record in the Sault the Provincial Offences Courtroom, by a Ministry of Labour representative Arvindi Sukhram reads in part: July 15, 2011, two workers employed as electrical maintenance technicians by Algoma Tubes at the facility located at 547 Wallace Terrace in Sault Ste. Marie were in the process of decommissioning an out of service motor control centre (a large electrical panel) located in the auxiliary electrical room in the section of the plant known as the Hot Mill, when a de energized control cable that one of the workers was removing came into contact with a 480 vole energized panel.

The fine levied clearly shows that the Company is going to be held accountable for its faults in this type of situation. We are just happy Our guys are alive and well. The Union is confident measures will be made to ensure these avoidable accidents do not occur in the future. Algoma Tenaris is training workers in groups. So the ones who have been trained can work on Womens Adidas Climacool Boat Shoes the equipment. The order is in effect but it only affects workers who have not been trained. So they are not allowed to work on it. If you been trained, you can work, but the stop work order, you forbidden from working on live electrical equipment until you been trained. I gather some have, but not all. All new electrical employees are trained before they perform work on the job. The order requires electrical employees be trained before they perform the work, which they have been. As such, we fully participated in the investigation and followup, working closely with the Ministry of Labour. We are aware of the outcome of the investigation and have taken all the necessary next steps internally and continue to improve. Both of our employees have fully returned to work.
