The latest fatal construction safety incident to hit Canada has been reported in Quebec, where a construction worker died after an unplanned collapse at a building site in Quebec City.

The worker, identified as 55-year-old Jean-François Cresson, died at the scene.

Cressonts employer told CBC News that his employer, an Italian firm, is cooperating with the investigation.

The building, which was constructed in 2017, was designed to house about 5,000 people.

The man’s death was first reported by CBC News.

Construction Safety Inc., an association that represents construction companies, told CBCNews that the cause of the collapse remains under investigation.

Cressont’s death is the third construction safety-related death in Quebec in the past three months.

In June, construction workers died when a structure in Quebec was collapsed.

In September, an engineer was killed in a construction accident in Guelph, Ont.

Last week, another construction worker was killed when the same structure collapsed.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
