Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 105445.015Event: 05/08/2018Employee Is Struck And Killed By Falling Tree
At 10:15 a.m. on May 8, 2018, Employee #1 and his crew were clearing the lot of a residential construction site. Employee #1 and two coworkers were clearing brush and removing felled logs to be hauled away. The foreman was operating a backhoe to move the logs toward a truck on the northeast corner of the lot. One of the coworkers was using a chain saw to cut the last standing tree on the southeast corner of the lot. As the tree fell, Employee #1 had just walked around the back end of the chipper to clear brush. His back was turned away from the falling tree, which struck Employee #1 from behind. Employee #1 suffered crushing injuries to his back and a head injury from striking a nearby log stump, killing him.
