Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 202317665
Event: 05/22/2006
Employee Is Killed In Fall From Platform

At approximately 3:20 p.m. on May 22, 2006, Employee #1 climbed over a guard railing and out onto an elevated pallet supported by a forklift. Employee #1 was not wearing or using fall protection. While on the elevated pallet Employee #1 was attempting to free the crossed replacement screen deck materials. Employee #1 fell approximately 16-ft 6-in. to the ground. After landing on the ground Employee #1 was then struck by the falling replacement screens. Employee #1's fall was likely caused by a shifting of the pallet on the forklift forks. The load on the pallet shifted because of Employee #1's own weight moving across the top of the pallet. The fall and the screens that struck Employee #1 caused serious injuries to his back and internal bleeding. Employee #1 was taken to the hospital and died a day and a half later.
