An employee at the Evraz Regina steel plant was sent to hospital for injuries sustained in a workplace incident.
A mechanical issue with a water pipe occurred during steel making in the melt shop, resulting in a sudden release of steam inside the shop Monday afternoon at about 3 p.m., the company said.
The employee injured in the incident remained hospitalized Tuesday, according to Patrick Waldron, Evraz North America spokesperson.
The mechanical failure and situation are being investigated.
