Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 200921914
Event: 06/24/2005
Employee Is Killed When Struck By Falling Object

At approximately 5:15 p.m. on June 24, 2005, an employee along with coworkers of a sub contractor, were setting a 4-ft inside diameter by 4-ft high manhole section in a trench or excavation approximately 16 ft 6 in.-long, 10 ft 11 in.-wide by 14 ft 10 in.-deep. The manhole ring had been rigged with 2-lifting pins, one on both side and a chain and was hoisted into the trench or excavation with a Kamatsu PC150 LC track excavator. The ring had been lowered to the bottom and it was determined that the bottom grade needed to be lowered to allow the pipe to fit the opening in the manhole section. The employee lifted the section approximately 15 ft. above the bottom of the trench or excavation when the chain slipped off one of the lifting pins allowing the concrete section to fall striking the employee and two other coworkers. The employee was killed.
