In order to get between the two machines, Employee #1 walks in an easterly direction along the front side of the corrugator and then turns north once at the end of the baler to the hogger, which is on the north side of the baler.

While walking over to one of the waste carts he was struck on his left leg by a clamp truck traveling in a northerly direction.
