At approximately 1:40 p.m. on June 19, 2013, Employee #1, with Staples Contract and Commercial, Inc., was unloading pallets from a semi-trailer, using a stand-up counterbalanced truck dock stocker (Number: 34; Make: Crown; Model Number: RC5525-30TT190; Serial Number: 1A333347). Employee #1 was working in the southwest corner of the warehouse adjacent to shipping doors 33 and 34. Once the pallets were unloaded, Employee#1 attempted to perform a two-point turn with the dock stocker. Employee #1 reversed the dock stocker, with the forks trailing. Then, Employee #1 used plugging to bring the dock stopper to a stop, before changing direction. Employee #1's left leg was extended outside the body of the dock stocker. Employee #1's left foot was crushed between the dock stocker and a safety angle iron (four ins. high), bolted to the warehouse floor. No accident related violation was cited, due to insufficient evidence of a violation-type condition resulting in a serious injury. Employee #1 was hospitalized with a fractured foot.
