Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 83579.015Event: 02/17/2016Employee Is Struck And Killed By Falling Object
At approximately 12:00 p.m. on February 17, 2016, Employee #1 was using a clamp truck to place large rolls of non-woven fabric in an open space created by the warehouse lead person in the storage area of the facility. The rolls were 63 inches in length by 30 inches in diameter and weighed approximately 125 pounds each. Employee #1 was instructed to stack the rolls 3 high and 9 rolls deep in the open space, then to place any remaining rolls in front of the open space. Employee #1 completed the stacked rolls 9 deep and was placing the remaining rolls in the back of the open space instead of the front as instructed. He backed the clamp truck out of the open space and struck the stacked rolls with the clamp truck causing them to topple over. He exited the clamp truck and began to stand the rolls up on end so that the he could restack them with the clamp truck. The stack of unstable rolls toppled over and struck Employee #1 in the back of the head. He was hospitalized with three broken vertebrae and was unable to feel his lower extremities. Employee #1 later died.
