Close Call/Serious Incident

Safety Alert Type: 
Planning and Engineering
Auger Rd, Burns Lk
Date of Incident / Close Call: 
Company Name: 
North Aspect Contracting Ltd.
Details of Incident / Close Call: 

Crew was surveying a blk. It was hunting season and we had signs up Alerting people “Crew Working In Area”. At the end of the day the crew got in the truck to drive home, only to find the Rd had been de-activated. It took hours placing logs and wood to get through the de-activations. The vehicle also sustained damage.

Learnings and Suggestions: 

Place sign at the beginning of secondary Rd where it joins main line. It is also the responsibility of the de-activation crew to drive to the END of the Rd being de-activated. If this had of been practiced, the situation could have been avoided. MOFR Burns Lake was informed of the incident, for investigation.
