At approximately 1:00 p.m. on June 29, 2001, Employee #1, of West Coast Conveyor & Equipment, was installing a new metal storage rack system in the warehouse of TASQ Technology in Roseville, CA. He was using a stand-up type forklift to move a pallet of material from one storage rack to another. Upon reaching the second rack, he set the pallet down in front of it, and began backing out, making an S-type maneuver. Employee #1 was backing toward the storage racks on the opposite side of the aisle when, for some reason, he accelerated and ran under the lower crossbrace of the storage rack. He was crushed against the top of the forklift console, suffering chest and internal injuries. First aid was provided by the Emergency Response Team of TASQ before paramedics from the Roseville Fire Department arrived and transported him to Sutter Roseville Medical Center. Employee #1 died two hours later as a result of internal bleeding from the crushing injuries sustained in the accident.
