At about 9:05 on August 4, 2017, Employee #1, a forklift operator, was working i n the bulk storage area of a food warehouse. At some time during the workday, a bulk bag containing beans was torn and the employee attempted to repair the tea r with clear tape to stop the spillage of beans. The torn bulk bag was located beneath two other bulk bags, each containing approximately 2,'00 pounds of beans . As the employee attempted to repair the bulk bag the two bulk bags fell on th e employee and trapped him beneath the bulk bags. The employee was found uncons cious beneath the two bulk bags. Factors, which contributed to the worker's dea th, include but are not limited to: not properly identifying the safe working lo ad of each bulk bag including the safe load/stress, placed on the damaged bulk b ags, properly protecting bulk bags from vehicle damage and stacking bulk bags. The safe working load for each of the bulk bags is 2,500 pounds as identified on the bag's warning tag and manufacturer's specifications. The excessive weight placed on the lower bulk bag along with the damaged fabric wall, exceeded the sa fe working load for the bulk bag.
