SYDNEY, N.S. - A provincial court trial in the 2004 workplace death of a Nova Scotia Power worker has been adjourned again.
Joseph Wrice, 35, of Glace Bay, N.S., was working in a coal hopper storage container at the Lingan generating station when he became buried in coal.
Nova Scotia Power Inc. is charged with two counts under the provincial Occupational Health and Safety Act.
The trial was supposed to begin Monday in Sydney but the lawyers requested and received an adjournment until June 16.
The trial began last month but dealt only with motions put forth by the power company.
The adjournment was granted to allow all sides more time to exchange materials involving expert testimony.
Wrice worked as a coal handler responsible for filling coal bunkers at the generating station.
