Guelph man killed unloading rail car
Guelph - Investigators spent much of yesterday examining a Guelph job site where a city man was killed on Wednesday afternoon while unloading a railroad car.
William Michael CHAMBERLAIN, 41, was discovered lying on the ground about 1: 30 p.m. at Safetran Canada on Edinburgh Road South. He had been using a boom truck to unload 40-foot sections of steel track.
Richard DEN BOK, a senior investigator with the ministry of labour, said that nobody actually saw what happened to Chamberlain.
"We're trying to get things pieced back together," DEN BOK said. "We don't know where he was struck or where he was standing or anything like that."
It is believed that CHAMBERLAIN, known to co-workers as Mike, was using a hand-held control box to operate the large boom, which is equipped with a claw for picking up the steel rails.
Wayne PEGELO, Safetran's Guelph supervisor, said Chamberlain - who had only worked for the company since April - was not the kind of employee who would cut corners to save time.
"We're trying to figure out what happened," he said. "He was a very safety-conscious employee; that's why we think something must have gone wrong."
Safetran is a distributor of rail products. Canadian manager Joel STEVENS flew from Winnipeg yesterday morning upon hearing of the tragedy, and company president John TALIRICO was expected to arrive last night from West Virginia.
"We want to make sure everything's taken care of properly," STEVENS said, adding that the primary concern was for Chamberlain's widow and sons, aged 14 and nine.
"We don't want to put any more undue stress on these people," Stevens said, adding that Safetran has "a good insurance plan."
STEVENS never met CHAMBERLAIN, but spoke to the man often on the phone.
"He was an extremely valuable employee," he said. "Mike was the kind of guy - you could just put a task in front of him and he'd take care of it."
DEN BOK said investigators were trying yesterday to determine whether all the equipment was working properly.
"Within a few days, we should have a better idea of what happened," he said.
