BRAMPTON, ON - Anixter Canada Inc., a Mississauga wire, cable, communications and security product company, was fined $50,000 after a worker was injured.

On July 24, 2013, a worker employed by Anixter Canada Inc., used an order picker forklift to move empty pallets at the Anixter warehouse located at 200 Foster Crescent in Mississauga. The worker was operating the forklift in reverse down an aisle, with the pallets stacked loosely on the forks. A pallet came into contact with a nearby rack and was pushed into the operator's compartment, pinning and causing injury to the worker's leg.

Anixter Canada Inc., pleaded guilty to failing to ensure that materials were carried or moved in such a way that did not endanger the safety of any worker.

The fine was imposed by Justice of the Peace Barry Quinn. In addition to the fine, the court imposed a 25-per-cent victim fine surcharge as required by the Provincial Offences Act. The surcharge is credited to a special provincial government fund to assist victims of crime.
