A mushroom farm near Campbellville has been fined $50,000 because one of its workers was injured in an on-site crash of forklifts.
The same company was fined $140,000 in 2014 after a worker was killed by a reversing front-end loader.
Monaghan Mushrooms Ltd. of 7345 Guelph Line pleaded guilty both times to violating occupational health and safety laws.
The crash of the forklifts and a pallet driver happened April 29 and happened after they stopped, waited, then started up again. The pallet driver fell off and was seriously injured.
A Ministry of Labour investigation found the mushroom farm didn't have any policies, procedures or training around which vehicles have the right of way. All three workers had different ideas about who had the right of way.
On Dec. 20, 2011, a worker employed by a subcontractor was hit and killed by a reversing front-end loader and that resulted in the $140,000 fine in 2014.
