One-man machines: The operator should be the only person on a wheel loader

The accident: Crews were working at night to replace aging cast-iron water pipes in an intersection.

After the loader stopped backing up and started moving forward, the worker decided to hitch a ride, and grabbed the loader’s side ladder.
