Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 170192173Event: 03/02/1992Employee'S Ankle Fractured By Stepping Into Floor Opening
At or about 1:00 p.m. on March 2, 1992, Employee #1 and his foreman, of Instrument Technology International, were preparing for a shutdown of the machinery. Employee #1 was walking east to west through a maintenance walkway. Steam in the paper production area fogged his glasses and, consequently, reduced his visibility as he stepped into a floor opening (trough), 5 in. wide by 28 in. long, located at the west end. Employee #1 lost his balance and fractured his right ankle. He was taken to Ontario Community Hospital in Ontario, CA, for treatment. Employee #1 had worked for this company for 1 1/2 months and was an experienced instrument fitter. A general citation of T8CCR 3212(a)(1) was issued to Instrument Technology International.
