Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201795184Event: 01/23/2002Employee Fractures Hip When Knocked Down By Falling Bale
On January 23, 2002, Employee #1 was knocked down by a falling bale of scrap foam weighing about 300 pounds. No witnesses observed the accident. He fractured his left hip. Employee #1's job duties involved gathering scrap foam throughout the facility, baling the scraps, then moving the bales to the loading dock using a pallet jack. His job duties did not include loading the bales into trailers parked in the loading pit. At the time of the accident, he entered one of the trailers to retrieve a few scraps of foam. He apparently was aware that this practice was against company policy, and his employer had told him prior to the accident not to do this. A bale of foam fell on Employee #1 knocking him to the ground, fracturing his left hip. Employee #1 was hospitalized for about 6 weeks to treat his fractured hip.
