A Tecumseh vegetable processing plant has been fined $80,000 after a worker was injured while cleaning a conveyor belt.
On Nov. 10, 2015, a worker was cleaning a tank and conveyor.
While scrubbing the conveyor, the worker's arm was pulled into the machine.
A co-worker stopped the machine and the conveyor belt had to be immediately dismantled to release the worker.
The machine was not equipped with a guard to help prevent the worker's arm to be trapped.
The company was fined $80,000 by Justice of the Peace Calvin Hurst in a Windsor court room on Monday.
