The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL - THE HAMIL­TON SPEC­TA­TOR

The Min­istry of Labour is in­ves­ti­gat­ing what led to a fa­tal work­place ac­ci­dent in Stoney Creek.

Emer­gency crews were called to Janco Steel Ltd. on Arvin Av­enue around 11:50 a.m. Thurs­day where they dis­cov­ered a man had been killed by a steel coil that had fallen on him. The worker suf­fered a head in­jury and died at the scene, said min­istry spokesper­son Janet De­line.

She said the coil came off some rig­ging, and pinned the man to the ground.

Police are help­ing the min­istry with its in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

The name of the vic­tim wasn’t re­leased Thurs­day evening as next of kin hadn’t yet been no­ti­fied.

A Janco rep­re­sen­ta­tive could not be reached for com­ment Thurs­day.
