Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 14482996
Event: 05/14/1984
Employee Killed When Crushed Between Forklift Parts

At approximately 2:30 p.m. on May 14, 1984, Employee #1 was replacing a hydraulic seal on the main vertical hydraulic cylinder of a Caterpillar electric forklift truck. He was standing on the dashboard replacing a pin that connects the top of the cylinder to the top of the mast when his foot or leg apparently struck a control lever. This caused the mast to move toward the front of the overhead protection canopy, crushing and killing Employee #1 between the two. Turning the key switch off or disengaging the battery connector could have prevented this accident.
