Why?

On March 11, 2019 the employee attended a morning meeting with the Employer, the service manager at RV Dealer, where the work that was going to be done that day was discussed. During this meeting there was discussion of icy conditions in the yard and that pea gravel may need to be used for surface traction. The RV Dealer was in possession of a gravel truck that could be used to apply the pea gravel. The employer told the employee that he could use the unit or to ask him or another worker for help on this task.

One of the tasks that the employee was assigned on that day was to move the RV involved in the incident out of the wash bay and into the yard. After moving several other recreational units that morning. The employee proceeded with this task in the early afternoon.

The wash bay manager at the RV Dealer, opened the bay door and the employee backed the tractor into the wash bay, The employee then connected the tractor to the RV.

The Employee proceeded to tow the RV out of the wash bay, and the wash bay manager closed the bay door. The employee continued to move towards the area where the RV was to be parked in the yard. During this process the tractor lost control, causing the RV to jackknife, thereby crushing the employee and causing a fatal injury.
