Abstract: On January 12, 2010, Employee #1, a 57-year-old truck driver with Thomas Crane and Trucking, had arrived at the work location and attempted to open a secure gate by reaching through an opening between the gate frame and the wall to access a security keypad just inside the gate. At that moment, however, Employee #2, inside the yard and in his truck, activated the gate using a remote control from inside his vehicle. As the gate began to open, Employee #1's finger was caught by the moving gate, and he suffered a fracture to the finger.
