EMPLOYEE WAS LIFTING AN 1810 LB. CASTING WITH AN OVERHEAD CRANE WITH A SLING AND HOOK. HE MOVED IT TO A WOOD PALLET THAT WAS 36"X42" AND SET IT DOWN. THE CASTING WAS NOT TOTALLY ON THE PALLET, SO HE STARTED TO LIFT THE CASTING OFF THE PALLET & FLOOR, SO HE COULD REPOSITION THE CASTING CORRECTLY ON TO THE WOOD PALLET. AS HE LIFTED THE CASTING THE 2ND TIME, IT FELL OFF THE HOOK ONTO THE FLOOR, PALLET AND HIS LEFT FOOT. HOOK WAS NOT IN ITS PROPER POSITION FOR THE 2ND LIFT, DUE TO LOWERING IT TOO MUCH THE FIRST TIME AND FAILING TO POSITION THE HOOK ONTO THE CASTING BEFORE LIFTING IT THE 2ND TIME. EMPLOYEE ERROR.
