(Sept-Iles) A worker was found unconscious near a tanker decontamination company Veolia facilities in Sept-Îles, around 10am.
The individual was taken to Sept-Îles health center where his death was confirmed. The Commission on Health and Safety (CSST) has opened an investigation to try to clarify the circumstances of what appears at first to be an industrial accident.

CSST inspectors must begin their work early in the afternoon.
