    Collapse of earth wall in Alberta fatally injures worker - By: Canadian Occupational Health & Safety News
    An excavator was loading earth into Williams' truck around the time of the incident, says Barrie Harrison, a spokesman with Alberta Employment, Immigration and Industry (AEII). Williams was crushed by the wall of earth — which was 18 metres wide — and died at the scene of the accident.
    The construction sector in Alberta witnessed the highest number of workplace fatalities in 2007 with 17 deaths, up from eight in 2006, notes information from AEII.
