Work­SafeBC has levied a $5,000 fine against a Prince Ge­orge busi­ness over im­proper han­dling of wood dust. Ac­cord­ing to a post­ing on the agency’s web­site, an in­spec­tion of Hyon Bed­ding Ltd. re­vealed “ac­cu­mu­la­tions of wood dust on sur­faces through­out the fa­cil­ity, in­clud­ing near ig­ni­tion sources such as drive mo­tors and elec­tri­cal de­vices. “The firm failed to con­trol and re­move haz­ardous ac­cu­mu­la­tions of com­bustible dust, a re­peated and high-risk vi­o­la­tion.” Hyon Bed­ding Ltd. sorts and bags sawmill wood shav­ings for sec­ondary pro­cess­ing. The fine was is­sued on April 15.
