Employee Killed At UW-Madison Campus In Loading Dock Accident

A 63-year-old man was killed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus last week in a loading dock accident.

The Prairie du Sac man was repairing a loading dock lift outside the Arts Loft building on North Frances Street last Tuesday when it collapsed on him. He was taken to a local hospital, but died shortly after from injuries he sustained in the accident.

According to an article on the University of Wisconsin’s news site, he had worked for the university for 24 years. University police, UW Safety as well as Occupational Safety and Health Administration are all investigating the accident.

The employee was responsible for repairing equipment and making parts in the university operations department. According to reports, a 40-year-old employee was electrocuted in July 2011 while working in the Humanities building.
