At J&R Excavation & Demolition Ltd., we are committed to safety. We follow the guidelines set out by Worksafe BC and standard operating procedures for the excavation industry.

Our hearts go out to the family and coworkers involved in a tragic workplace accident that left a 34 year old man dead in West Vancouver.

CBC reports that the accident happened around 1:30pm on May 10, 2017 near Cypress Bowl Road.

The excavator he was working in toppled over, on a steep grade and he was thrown off the machine.

At J&R, we will take this learning experience and remind our team of safe operating practices for all of our excavation, stone slinger and machine services team.
