The worker suffered serious hand injuries, according to the province.
Following an investigation, Shilo Farms – a farming business that mainly grows potatoes and had around 40 employees at the time of the injury – was fined $ 28,675 and an additional $ 2,000, which will be used to inform the public about occupational safety and health.
CBC News reached out to the company for comment, but did not immediately receive a response.
Occupational safety and health officials are taking the opportunity to remind employers to make sure their workplaces are safe and that protective measures are in place for machinery.
