Employee #1 was running a new wire to a material lift table. The table had been raised using a forklift and was blocked to prevent it from falling. Once he had finished wiring the hydraulic motor, he removed the supporting blocks. The lift fell, striking Employee #1 on the head. He was killed. The lift dropped because there was no hydraulic fluid in the back cylinder.
