ARRAS, B.C. — WorkSafeBC recently fined Surerus Pipeline $355,244.39 for a repeated high-risk violation at its Arras site, outside of Dawson Creek.

According to WorkSafeBC, Surerus Murphy is the primary contractor, and the site owner is Trans Canada.

Upon inspection of the worksite where two excavations had been dug to position a pipeline under a road, WorkSafeBC reportedly noticed multiple vehicles and pieces of equipment operating near the excavation. 

The company didn’t implement a curb to stop the vehicles from falling into the craters, according to the provincial agency.

WorkSafeBC said this was a repeated violation.
