If there were tape markings on the ground then the dust cloud would have been obligated to abide by them.
Here's CHEK's coverage of the pedestrian incident; the contractor is claiming that the pedestrian ignored orders:
And that's why you don't hire an excavation contractor to do structural demolition! As Rob says it will be interesting to see Work Safe BC's investigation on this one. There should have been a written Demolition Plan stamped by a Structural Engineer for this. Wonder if they had one or not and if they actually followed it?
There also should have been a Traffic and Pedestrian Management Plan especially given the building looks like it was built right to the lot lines. Both of the guys that should have been diverting pedestrians to the other side of the street appear to be totally mesmerized by the excavator and oblivious to the pedestrians their suppose to be protecting until its to late.
And work safe should also be after them for not having or following an Exposure Control Plan. There is no monsoon fogger or fire hose in use to control dust and neither of the two workers are wearing any form of PPE like a respirator or even a paper dust mask.
I believe this is the Worksafe incident report. No other information is available yet.
