Event: 04/28/1987
Employee Killed When Struck By Falling Hoist Load

Employee #1 and a coworker built a 14-ft by 46-ft wooden floor for a modular home. They then attached a lifting device and raised the floor. The two employees left the hoist controls with the load suspended and, with Employee's #1 back to it, they started to build another floor. The lifting device broke at one end, causing the floor to shift and to strike Employee #1 in the back. He died of a severed spinal cord.
