On Sunday, an electrical worker was fatally injured after his bucket truck tipped over. The accident occurred in Wayne Township, Pennsylvania when the 54-year-old worker from New Castle, Pennsylvania was working on a utility pole. The vehicle was parked on an incline and became unstable, which led the bucket truck to tip over. Both the electrical company and the police will conduct dual investigations regarding the fatal accident.
Even when employees take every precaution to remain safe when performing dangerous jobs, the possibility of sustaining personal injuries or fatalities still exists. In some cases, workers may not have enough experience or be inadequately prepared with the right amount of training to handle hazardous work. Other times, the employer may fail to secure or maintain the premises of the workplace, leading to injuries or fatalities.
