Overhead Crane Injures Canadian Worker

02/22/11

Ontario, Canada

On Feb. 22, a 41-year-old worker from London was knocked unconscious after he was hit by a swinging bin being moved by an overhead crane. He was not seriously injured.

It also comes exactly one week after the Ministry of Labour received complaints about how the crane was being operated at the site, which is run by Tricar Developments.

According to the Ministry of Labour a complaint was received on March 2, claiming the crane was routinely lifting construction material over top of workers.

The complaint was investigated the same day, but proper documents and processes appeared to be in place and no charges were laid.

The Ministry of Labour cannot confirm whether the same crane operator was involved in both incidents.

Calls made to Tricar Wednesday were not returned.
