Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 99955.015Event: 10/18/2017Farm Machinery Operator Killed When Tractor Rolls Over
At 5:30 a.m. on October 18, 2017, an employee was working for a firm engaged in crop harvesting, primarily by machine. The employer provided agricultural services, including vegetable harvesting and packing. The employee was driving an agricultural tractor with a trailer. As he was driving, the trailer rolled over on an embankment as the embankment made a T-intersection with a dirt road. The tractor and trailer fell off approximately 7.6 meters (25 feet) at a main access road. Emergency personnel responded. The employee was pronounced dead at the scene by the coroner. At 7:00 a.m. that same day, the employer notified the Fremont/San Jose district office of the Division of Occupational Safety Health that a work-related injury that resulted in employee's death had occurred. An investigation into the incident was started on October 18, 2017. The CSHO held an opening conference with the firms vice-president and safety manager, following Cal/OSHA policies and procedures.
