We are very happy to see that this local Alberta worker was brought back to safety in stable condition. While this unfortunate incident appears to have been an honest mistake there are usually safety measures that can be taken to prevent these kinds of falls. Fall protection safety courses as well as ensuring proper gloves or footwear while climbing down manholes can be a preventative measure. This could have ended much worse than a 2 day hospital stay. It’s important to always learn from accidents around us in order to create safer workplaces here in Alberta. This fall is warranting an investigation that Alberta Labour has to complete within the next 2 years.
