July 25: Workers Killed When Equipment Rolled over into a Ditch


At a road work zone, two workers were crushed to death when the asphalt reclaimer they were operating rolled over into a ditch while they were repaving a highway. OHS officials from the Ministry of Labour are investigating the incident and issued two stop-work orders. Ledcor Group is the main contractor for the paving project, but the deceased workers were employed by a subcontractor.
