Two of the Canucks owners have been handed the highest single penalty in 2012 by WorkSafe BC.
Francesco and Roberto Aquilini, as well as Elisa Aquilini, have been fined $125,000 for failing to maintain in safe operating condition the farm vehicle they used to transport farm workers.
WorkSafe's Al Johnson says this is a repeat violation: “Where we see repeat violations, one plays upon the other, if you will, and that's what has happened in this particular place – to get them to approximately $125,000 and to top the 2012 penalty list.”
The second highest penalty was imposed against Skylite Building Maintenance Ltd for exposing workers to asbestos.
