Abstract: On December 6, 2006, Employee #1, a journeyman, was operating an experimental rock crusher. He was trying to avoid plugging by inspecting the crusher feed. He began returning to the control room using a walkway attached to the crusher. The walkway was 16 ft high. Three welds that attached the walkway to the crusher frame broke allowing one end of the walkway to fall to the ground. The employee fell from the walkway and landed on his back slightly compressing the 1st, 3rd and 4th vertebrae. Employee #1 was transported to Kaweah Delta Urgent Care in Visalia, California but was not hospitalized.
