Labour and Advanced Education Minister Kelly Regan is sending condolences after a man died in Hants County today, Apr. 16. “This is a tremendously tragic day for this man’s family, friends and loved ones,” said Ms. Regan. “I want to assure them that our investigators are onsite to help find out what happened, and I hope that, in some way, this helps to provide them some comfort.” RCMP are investigating. A safety officer and investigator from the Department of Labour and Advanced Education are also on site, and will assist in any way they can. This is the seventh workplace fatality this year. In 2014, 19 Nova Scotians died at work or as a result of a work-related illness.
