Minister Offers Condolences to Family of Deceased Worker

Labour and Advanced Education Minister Kelly Regan is sending condolences to the family, friends and loved ones of a man who died today, Nov. 7, after a fall while working at an industrial site in Clayton Park.

“I can’t imagine how this young man’s family must be feeling, and my thoughts are with them during this extremely difficult time,” said Ms. Regan. “I want to assure the family and all Nova Scotians that our investigation is underway, and we are committed to finding answers quickly about what caused today’s tragic incident.”

This is the 28th workplace fatality this year. In 2012, 32 Nova Scotians died at work.

A stop-work order has been issued until investigators are satisfied workers will be safe.
