Mining maintenance company fined $90,000 over injuries to apprentice

The WA Department of Commerce announced that a Boulder mining maintenance company has been fined $90,000 (and ordered to pay $3654.50 in costs) over an incident in which a 15-year-old was seriously and permanently injured.

Dalmain Enterprises Pty Ltd - trading as ATS Mining Maintenance - pleaded guilty to failing to provide and maintain a safe work environment and, by that failure, causing serious harm to employee and was fined in the Kalgoorlie Magistrates Courty.

"The court found that the employer did not adequately train its employees, and that the company's policy did not require employees to physically lock out machinery while it was tagged," Acting WorkSafe WA Commissioner Lex McCulloch said.
