SPRUCE GROVE – For the fourth time in just over a week, a person has been killed in a workplace related accident in Alberta.

Occupational Health and Safety says the latest death happened Monday when a 57-year-old man was killed at an RV dealership in Spruce Grove, west of Edmonton.

The department says the accident involved a fifth-wheel trailer being towed by a tractor at Grove RV and Leisure Inc.

OHS has issued a stop-use order for the equipment involved until it’s repaired.

A stop-work order has also been issued for all powered mobile equipment on the site until the company proves it was being used for its designed purpose.

Another accident Monday south of Grande Prairie killed a 31-year-old man when he was struck by heavy machinery, while accidents in Leduc and in the Grande Prairie region on March 4 claimed two lives.
