Employee #1, a maintenance worker in a warehouse for carbon alloy rods and bars, was standing in the cab of a four-axis P & H Powermast overhead stacker crane (Model No. CS 20016 with a capacity of 5 tons). He was approximately 8 feet above the floor, disengaging the crane from a minor collision with a skewed empty steel container pan in the aisle of a storage rack. He operated the controls incorrectly, and the crane continued in a forward direction. The protruding steel pan struck the steel sidewall of the crane, pushing it into the employee. He was crushed to death.
