F1mate: with all due respect to the marshal and his family. This was nothing more than human error.he dropped his radio and fell while picking it up from what I understand. A 6 month investigation in my opinion can not possibly be justified as a way to prevent someone from falling. The mistake can not be blamed on anyone but him. When he dropped radio and knew he would have to lose visual contact with operator he should have made operator aware of what he was doing. Of course hindsight is 20/20 and he had no idea that he was going to fall while picking it up. But to say that a 6 month investigation is acceptable is crazy. Nothing can prevent trips and falls but what can be prevented is communication between "ground" and machinery operators. If visual contact is going to be broken it is your own responsibility to make 100% sure that the operator is aware.
