Canada Energy Regulator orders Trans Mountain to prove safety procedures, orders contractor to stop using trench boxes after worker death in Edmonton


Article content

The Canada Energy Regulator (CER) has dispatched inspectors and ordered Trans Mountain Corp. on Friday to prove it has safety procedures in place for trench boxes, a type of equipment involved in a worker’s death in west Edmonton this week.

CER on Friday ordered Trans Mountain to ensure its contracted company SA Energy Group immediately stops using trench boxes until it can demonstrate that the company can use, assemble, and disassemble them safely. Trench boxes are a type of protective construction equipment used to protect workers from pressure and weight of soil and prevent cave-ins.

The regulator also ordered Trans Mountain to undertake a “root cause analysis” of how the death occurred, fix the errors, and take action to prevent similar incidents, and to confirm it has a process for training workers in using trench boxes safely along the entire length of the Trans Mountain expansion project.
