Abstract: On February 3, 2012, Employee #1 was operating a single-operator, side loading, refuse/recycling collection truck. The truck had dual controls and could be driven from either the right or left side of the cab. The left controls were used for driving the vehicle to and from the facility and to and from the land fill. Right controls were used while operating the vehicle on the collection route. Employee #1 backed to the end of a dead-end road on the collection route and began moving forward to the collection points. He exited the right side of the cab and walked to the front of the truck. When it rolled forward, Employee #1 was run over by the left front tire and then the left back dual tires. There were no witnesses to the incident. After the truck stopped rolling, a bystander entered it and manipulated controls to keep the truck from moving further. Employee #1 was pronounced dead at the scene.
