Harbour Sports Grille Found Guilty, Fined $110,000 For Failure to Comply With Orders

Ministry of Labour

TORONTO, ON - Harbour Sports Grille, a sports bar/restaurant carrying on business in Toronto as 1407640 Ontario Limited, has been convicted on 13 violations under the Occupational Health and Safety Act and fined $110,000.

A Ministry of Labour inspector issued various orders at this workplace between June 2011 and December 2011. The company was subsequently charged with failing to comply with 13 orders. These orders addressed a variety of safety issues including the lack of a joint health and safety committee, required policies and programs (health and safety, violence and harassment), material safety data sheets and safety mechanisms such as guards.

Following a trial, Harbour Sports Grille was found guilty of failing to comply with the inspector's orders and was fined $110,000. The fine was imposed by Justice of the Peace Mary Anne Ross-Hendricks.

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.
