Excerpt from the OH&S Canada Magazine
A 34-year-old worker was fatally injured on September 8 when a pre-fabricated concrete wall fell on him at a construction site near Halifax.
Chrissy Matheson, a spokesperson for Nova Scotia Labour and Workforce Development, says the accident occurred at about 11:30 am at the Burnside Industrial Park. The five-year employee of Tilt- Pro Contracting was working near the concrete wall, part of the future site of an Armour Transportation Systems (ATS) building, when a cement truck backed into the wall. The contact caused the wall to come down on the worker.
