Abstract: At 8:30 a.m. on September 10, 1990, Employee #1 finished loading a truck with cylinders that were to be delivered. He then moved the truck away from the dock to close and secure the tailgate. He set the truck's emergency brake, turned off the engine, and put the truck in neutral gear. When he slammed the tailgate shut, however, the truck rolled back and pinned the employee against the concrete dock. He was killed. The employee followed the instructions in the operator's manual on how to properly park the truck. The wheels were not chocked at the time.
