On May 22, 2009, a four-person crew was digging ditches and clearing land on the side of the Holyrood Access Road (Holyrood, Newfoundland & Labrador) when flagman Tom Connors, 57, was caught underneath an excavator and died.
While Concord was not found criminally responsible for his death, the company was charged under the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
The charges relate generally to allegations the company failed, as an employer, to provide a safe workplace, to ensure effective means of traffic control were provided and to ensure workers were not exposed to the movement of heavy equipment.
Judge Lois Skanes rendered her decision Friday afternoon (June 8) on provincial court in St. John's.
Sentencing is set for June 27.
