Officials are investigating a “serious workplace accident” at the City of Vancouver’s National Works Yard on Friday.
The city confirmed the incident, but said it could not immediately share any other details.
BC Emergency Health Services said it was called to an incident involving a loader at 2:10 p.m. and deployed three paramedic units, but that no patients were transported to hospital.
It was not immediately clear if the person involved was a City of Vancouver employee or contractor, or what they were doing at the time.
WorkSafeBC said it had assigned a prevention officer to the file.
The National Works Yard serves as the headquarters and supply depot for the city’s construction, maintenance and infrastructure crews as well as its snow-clearing operations.
