Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 79180.015Event: 08/28/2015Employee Killed While Limbing Trees
At 6:45 a.m. on August 28, 2015, a skidder operator was taking a few limbed tree s to the landing area, and noticed a tree on the side of the skidder path that h e thought had been limbed. The skidder operator dropped the limbed trees onto t he path and positioned the skidder to pick up the single tree that he thought ha d been limbed. Not seeing Employee #1, who was using a chain saw within the can opy of the tree, he assumed the employee was elsewhere. The skidder operator s tarted to drag the tree out, but noticed that the tree had not been limbed, so h e dropped it on the side of the drag path. The skidder operator then picked up the other trees that he had been dragging and took them to the landing area. On his way back to the cutting area he saw Employee #1. Employee #1 had been dragg ed 35 feet by the skidder and released from the canopy branches when the skidder operator turned, as he dragged the tree out. Employee #1 sustained a severe cut to his neck, likely from the chain saw, killing him.
