Abstract: On April 14, 2008, Employee #1, a refuse truck driver, was preparing to dump out the end of a load by increasing the engine revolutions to energize the hydraulics. The truck was left running, in 'drive', with the emergency brake set when Employee #1 exited the cab to access the dumping controls located on the side of the truck. Employee #1 should have put the truck in 'park'. When the truck began to move forward, Employee #1 tried to stop the truck from outside the cab by operating the brake pedal with his hand. Employee #1 was crushed between the truck and a building. Employee #1 was killed.
