Skid-steer loader fatality under investigation

Alberta Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) officers are investigating a workplace fatality in which a woman was killed near Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, after being run over by a skid-steer loader.

“A 52-year-old female worker was standing near a skid-steer loader that was being used to transport a pair of one-hundred pound air tanks,” said Brookes Merritt, spokesperson for Alberta OH&S.

“The skid-steer operator reversed the machine and drove over the female worker. The worker sustained fatal head injuries.”

The incident happened on Jan. 20 at a location near Rocky Mountain House.

The worker’s employer is Newcart Contracting.
