WorkSafeBC is investigating after a workplace fatality at Troyer Ventures Thursday morning.

Limited details have been released and it’s not known how the incident occurred. Police, paramedics, and firefighters were all on scene earlier today.

“The primary purpose of an investigation is to determine the cause of the incident, including any contributing factors, so that similar events can be prevented in the future,” a WorkSafeBC spokesperson said.

Fort St John RCMP says officers have concluded their investigation and have turned the matter over to WorkSafeBC and the Coroner’s Service. The death is not considered suspicious, police said.

WorkSafeBC says additional details are not being released until the investigation is over.

Representatives at Troyer could not be immediately reached.
