|Inspection Nr||Date Opened||SIC||NAICS||Establishment Name|
Abstract: At 10:00 a.m. on July 24, 1990, Employee #1 was operating a walk-behind, diesel-powered roller machine. He started to back up from a retaining wall at the same time a bulldozer operator was brake-dragging soil with a bulldozer. Subsequently, the vehicles backed into one another. Employee #1 was struck in the left hip by the dozer's left track and his pants became caught between the tracks. As the operator started to move the dozer forward, Employee #1 was pulled onto the tracks. He yelled to the operator to stop, then freed himself. Employee #1 sustained bruises to both of his upper legs and a fractured left ring finger. He was transported to St. Joseph Hospital for treatment. The bulldozer was equipped with a back-up alarm, but it was very hard to hear because of the surrounding noise.
