Fatality Alert - British Columbia

A Preliminary Information notice.

On February 28th, a chip truck went off the road and over a steep embankment on Highway 3 near Manning Park. The driver was trapped in the cab for two days before being rescued. Tragically, he passed away from his injuries on March 4th.

This, and the Scottish Woodlands Toolbox Talk on an overturned timber lorry, highlight the importance of having a reliable ‘lone working’ procedure.
