On April 19, 2007, Employee #1 was working at a marine terminal. His occupation is not stated, but the report's SIC, 7379, is for a computer consulting firm (which might be mistaken). He was working in close proximity to a large top pick/PIT (powered industrial truck), assisting in offloading intermodal shipping containers from rail cars at the terminal. As the driver of the top pick/PIT was backing it up and turning it to his right, repositioning it to move another container, Employee #1 went under the left front tires and was killed immediately. Though the top pick/PIT was equipped with a back up alarm, the alarm was found to be inoperative when checked after the accident. No other equipment deficiencies were noted.
