Employee Killed When Struck By Sling

At approximately 3:00 p.m. on February 26, 2003, Employees #1 and two coworkers were using an excavator to lift large wooden mats from a barge to a truck trailer on the dock. A wire rope sling was attached to the hook on the excavator bucket to lift the mat. Employee #1 was standing next to the trailer and was responsible for removing the slings after the mats were placed on the trailer.
