A Saskatchewan-based construction company has been hit with a heavy fine in the death of a man who helped build the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital in Saskatoon.

A judge has fined Banff Constructors $500,000 for the death of Eric Ndayishimiye in 2016.

He was killed after a 560-kilogram metal table cart fell on him.

Banff Constructors was found guilty in April of two counts under Saskatchewan’s Occupational Health and Safety Act.
