Thirty-six-year-old Nicklas Taylor was a foreman at a Fountain Tire facility in Kamloops, B.C.
The service says he was unloading a trailer-load of tires when he somehow became trapped.
He died at the scene.
Fountain Tire vice-president Nelson Tonn has said the company is co-operating with authorities and an internal investigation will be conducted.
WorkSafeBC and the coroners service are also investigating.
