Abstract: At approximately 10:30 a.m. on December 13, 1993, Employee #1 was removing a rack and pinion assembly from under the front end of an Aerostar van. The van was supported by a wire rope and hook on a wrecker-type truck using a power take-off winch. A safety-chain assembly was not used nor was the vehicle jacked and blocked to prevent it from falling. While Employee #1 was removing the rack and pinion with an impact wrench, the van slipped off the hook and fell on his head and chest, killing him.
