OTTAWA — Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development inspectors have visited the site of an Ottawa construction fatality three times this week as they continue to investigate the Jan. 25 incident.
Police, paramedics and ministry inspectors were called to a residential building site on Westar Farm Way operated by Grizzly Homes on Monday afternoon after a worker was struck when a wall collapsed. The worker, who subsequently died, was employed by a subcontractor, Bacic Forming Concrete Ltd.
Two ministry inspectors visited the scene Jan. 25, with one order and one requirement issued to the constructor and one requirement issued to the subcontractor.
The next day, three inspectors and an engineer returned to the workplace to continue the investigation. Three orders and one requirement were issued to the constructor.
On Jan. 27, two inspectors returned to continue the investigation with eight more orders and two requirements issued to the constructor. One requirement was issued to the subcontractor.
The ministry investigation continues.
