An investigation is underway into the second workplace death in a week in our province.

The latest happened in Mulgrave when a crew member died after an incident on fishing boat owned by Clearwater Seafoods.

The vessel Anne Risley was undergoing annual maintenance last Thursday when the death occurred.

Details surrounding what happened are not known, and no other injuries were reported.

Meantime, a 43-year-old man died on February 19 at the Irving Halifax Shipyard after he was struck by a piece of equipment during snow clearing operations.

The Department of Labour is investigating both deaths.
