Worker killed at RV business in Spruce Grove
Man, 57, died Monday after mishap involving 5th-wheel trailer
A 57-year-old man died Monday after a workplace incident at a business in Spruce Grove, west of Edmonton.
The mishap happened around 1 p.m. at Grove RV & Leisure, Occupational Health and Safety spokesperson Charity Wallace said Tuesday.
The incident involved "towing a fifth-wheel RV with a tractor," Wallace said.
OHS officials are still investigating, she said.
The death is the latest in a string of recent workplace fatalities in Alberta.
On March 4, a 37-year-old man died after being struck by a vehicle at a business on a rural property south of Grande Prairie. The vehicle was backing up when it hit the worker, RCMP said.
Later the same day, a 45-year-old man died in Leduc when he fell from a fourth-floor balcony at an apartment building that was undergoing renovations.
This week, a 31-year-old man suffered fatal injuries Monday after being struck by heavy machinery at a worksite about 60 kilometres south of Grande Prairie.
