Worker dies in accident near Venice

Spate of workplace accident deaths continues

(ANSA) - ROME, NOV 29 - A 50-year-old specialized technician died in a work accident in the Palazzo del Turismo at Jesolo near Venice on Monday, the latest in a string of fatal workplace accidents in Italy.
    The worker was reportedly doing maintenance work on a fire system for Venice city council, the owner of the building, when a gas canister exploded.
    The man, who was working for a firm based at Salzano near Venice, reportedly died instantly.
    An autopsy has been ordered.
    Workplace accidents have been grabbing headlines in Italy since the death of a 22-year-old mother of a five-year-old boy in a textile mill near Prato in May.
    The government has introduced new safety measures and hired thousands of inspectors to try to stem the tide of deaths.
