Alberta Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) is investigating the death of a man at an auto parts facility in Calgary on Monday.
Officials were called to the Forest Lawn Auto Parts Depot at about 11 a.m. for reports a man pinned by a vehicle.
The employee, a man in his 50’s, was working under a vehicle when it shifted and fell on his chest, OHS said.
A stop-work order was issued for any tasks/actions that involve elevating a vehicle to ensure worker safety and to let officials complete their investigation, OHS said Tuesday.
The stop-work order will be in place until investigators determine it’s safe for employees to get back to work, OHS said.
