Oilsands company fined $1.5M in Chinese workers' deaths
A company operating near Fort McMurray has been hit with the largest penalty in Alberta for a workplace safety violation.
Sinopec Shanghai Engineering Company Canada will have to pay out a total of $1.5 million.
The charges stem from an accident that happened almost five years ago that killed two temporary foreign workers and injured two others.
A judge ruled Thursday the company will pay a fine of $200,000, with the rest of the money — $1.3 million- going to a new program teaching temporary foreign workers about their rights when it comes to safety on the job.
