Employee Sustains Multiple Injuries When Struck By Hot Alumi

At 4:45 p.m. on October 9, 2021, an employee was placing spacers on a stack of b illets at an aluminum plate work manufacturing facility. Then employee was stack ing steel I-beams as spacers so that the aluminum billets could be placed into t he homogenization oven. The two billets were each 19 inches diameter by 16 feet long and weighed approximately 7,000 to 10,000 lbs each, with an average temper ature of at least 500 degrees Fahrenheit. While the employee was preparing the s pacers, the billets were on the forks of a Hyster Model H400HD, Serial Number C2 36E03510T diesel sit-down fork truck. The fork truck lost hydraulic power which caused the forks to tilt forward and downward, losing the load of billets which struck the employee when they fell. The employee was hospitalized to treat secon d degree burns to the left hand, fractures and dislocation of the left ankle, fr actures of the left leg distal fibula, multiple fractures on the left and right feet and toes, and third degree burns from the ankle to the waist of the left si de.
