Flynn Canada Lim­ited has been charged with vi­o­la­tions of the Oc­cu­pa­tional Health and Safety Act and Reg­u­la­tions in re­la­tion to an in­ci­dent at the site of the Paul Reynolds Com­mu­nity Cen­tre in St. John’s in Septem­ber 2015.

The charges come af­ter an in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the Oc­cu­pa­tional Health and Safety Di­vi­sion of Ser­vice NL.

The in­ci­dent in­volved work on the roof while the build­ing was un­der construction. A worker suf­fered in­juries when he fell through an open­ing in the roof to the ground be­low.

The com­pany is fac­ing three charges in re­la­tion to its al­leged fail­ure: pro­vide a safe work­place; en­sure that work­ers were made fa­mil­iar with haz­ards; and en­sure that tem­po­rary floor­ing was in­stalled at the work area.

The com­pany made its first ap­pear­ance in pro­vin­cial court at St. John’s on Tues­day.
