Three operators of a Langley mushroom farm have been fined $350,000 in B.C. provincial court in Surrey on Friday morning after pleading guilty to charges linked to the death of three workers.
The three operators of the A-1 Mushroom Substratum operation, Ha Qua Truong, Van Thi Truong and Phinh Hwu Doan, pleaded guilty earlier this year to ten of 29 charges under the Workers Compensation Act and occupational health and safety regulations.
Three men died at the mushroom farm after inhaling fatal doses of toxic fumes in September, 2008. Two other workers were left with brain damage.newsworksafebc
