Employee #1, a laborer, was off-loading a rented Genie, self-propelled articulating boom lift, from a trailer. He drove the Genie off the trailer to flat ground and then started down the ramp to an underground parking facility. As he drove down the ramp, the brakes failed and the lift ran into a wall. Employee #1 was partially ejected from the lift between the upper and lower rails, and the fall was stopped by his restraint belt. He received a small laceration to his forehead and strained his left shoulder and right knee. He was treated and released from the hospital the same day.
