    What’s there to investigate? The driver of a truck is generally responsible for his cargo, truck, and related activities. He obviously slipped and fell, un-assisted.

    He should have had fall protection. If the company did not make it available and enforce the use of fall protection, there is a problem.

    Did he use it and the anchor point break? Or was it something else that was defective in the fall protection? That is why they investigate.

    Could be a case of double-dipping. Was he on top of the truck to access the chocolate for something work related or to dip a cone for his own personal use?

    Why is it that evertime there’s an accident, someone like you starts crying “there should have been fall protection”? Having handled transportation claims for multiple decades I’ve NEVER seen any “fall protection” for drivers, nor have I ever encountered one who would use a lanyard even if it was available. Nobody should be expected to idiot proof everthing in the world. Most tankers have handrails for that purpose. The guy might has simply “slipped”. _shit happens. What’s next, a recommendation for a device to keep people from stepping out in front of cars?

    That’s not funny.
