Abstract
A 20 year-old road construction company flagman was crushed to death when he fell from and was subsequently run over by an asphalt roller. The Nebraska Department of Labor investigator concluded that to prevent future similar occurrences, employers should: 1. Establish a comprehensive training program for all personnel operating specialized machinery to include "hands-on" training and documentation. 2. Establish a thorough vehicle maintenance and inspection program. 3. Develop, implement and enforce a comprehensive safety program that includes, but is not limited to, training in all hazard recognition.
