An Edmonton worker was killed on their job site on Monday.

EMS were called to 4144 78 Ave., Rylex Machine and Supply Ltd., around 4:15 p.m. and declared a person at the scene dead.

The provincial government confirmed a worker died “after becoming entangled in machinery.”

Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) is investigating and says it issued a verbal stop-use order for the piece of equipment involved. The order will remain in place until the investigation is finished and the equipment can be used safely. 

“We are deeply saddened,” general manager Ryan Cummings told CTV News Edmonton in a statement. “Our company is conducting a thorough internal inquiry and actively cooperating with Occupational Health and Safety (OHS). We will know more when that process is completed.”

Officials did not identify the victim.
