The Ministry of Labour, Skills and Training Development is investigating the circumstances between two workers suffering serious injuries on June 3 at Kenora’s Weyerhaeuser Mill.

Spokesperson Kalem McSween says the Ministry received a report of the injury on June 3, after two workers received non-critical injuries while inspecting a piece of equipment at the mill. The two workers later received medical treatment at the Lake of the Woods District Hospital.

The ministry adds an inspector has since attended the workplace and their investigation is ongoing. Requests for further information on the matter sent to Weyerhaeuser were not returned by the time of publishing.
