Construction Worker Hurt and Hospitalized After Being Run Over by Excavator in Stow, Maine


Stow, ME —  A construction worker was airlifted to the hospital after being run over by an excavator. The incident occurred Tuesday around 11:30 a.m. on South Barbour Road.

No further details have been released.

Thoughts on work-related accidents

With 4.3 million nonfatal workplace injuries in 2022 (a 4.5 percent rise from 2021), it’s understandable why some might view work-related injuries as an inevitable part of the job. However, this perception is misguided. It should never be considered normal or acceptable for workers to endure injuries that have life-altering consequences.

Under the OSH Act’s General Duty Clause, employers are required to maintain a workplace that is safe and free from hazards that could result in serious injury or death. Federal law guarantees the right to a safe working environment, obligating companies to eliminate safety risks. Were these safety guidelines applied at this accident site?

An investigation by trained professionals can help determine whether any negligence or wrongdoing contributed to this incident. If it did, those responsible should be held accountable.
