At approximately 2:00 p.m. on February 28, 2002, Employee #1 was cleaning the paint booth area located in the laydown yard on the DWR property. He finished cleaning most of the dirt and debris off of the paint booth floor but needed to move the sandblaster pot out of the way so that he could clean behind and around it. The sandblaster pot had four wheels and a handle. As he was pulling the sandblasting pot out of the paint booth, one of the wheels hit a rock and the full 800-pound sandblasting machine tipped over toward him. He attempted to stop it but it fell on his left hand. Employee #1 sustained a fractured hand and knuckle and was hospitalized for three days.
