2 UPS Employees Killed in Workplace Accident
Package Handlers Die While Loading Packages at Ontario International Airport
Ontario, CA (November 25, 2019) – Two UPS employees were killed in a workplace accident at Ontario International Airport. The fatal accident occurred on the morning of November 25.
Two part-time package handlers were working at UPS’ hub at Ontario International Airport. The employees were on a tug, which is a tractor-like vehicle that pulls dollies that are loaded with containers. These containers are then loaded onto airplanes. Some tugs have tops, but the ones that the employees were using did not. The tug flipped over, killing both workers.
Cal/OSHA is investigating the fatal accident.
Our heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and loved ones of the victims.
