Abstract
A 37-year-old truck driver died when run over by a backhoe at a road construction site. He was riding on the backhoe by standing on the backhoe step and holding onto the handrail. The backhoe operator saw the victim and assumed he was on when he started backing. The operator looked over his right shoulder and traveled approximately 10 feet before running over the victim. The CA/FACE investigator determined that, in order to prevent future occurrences, employers, as part of their Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) should: 1. Develop, implement and enforce a policy that clearly states no riders are allowed on backhoes. 2. Install safety-warning labels on backhoes that clearly state that riders are prohibited.
