While standing in front of the control panel, she saw a jam inside the filling room. Quickly she hit the stop button at the control panel. As she turned and stepped toward the filling room, she slipped and lost her balance. She hit her head on the control panel and, as she tried to break her fall with her hands, she fractured her right wrist in several places. Employee #1 underwent wrist surgery, and stayed three days in the hospital. She was cited for violation of T8CCR 342(a), regulatory, and T8CCR 3273(a), serious.
