Abstract: Employee #1, a fork lift operator, was handling harvest bins at a farm produce staging yard. His primary function was to unload flatbed trucks arriving from the fields and stage the vegetables for later transfer to the packing house. He also placed empty bins on the flatbed to be moved back into the fields. Apparently, Employee #1 jumped off his forklift while loading empty bins on a flatbed to make a space on the truck for more bins. The lift truck crept forward and pinned him against the bed of the truck. There were no witnesses to the accident, and Employee #1 was found in a standing position, crushed between the empty harvest bins on the forklift and the bed of the truck. The forklift was in gear with the motor running and the load had not been fully lowered.
