Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201172145Event: 09/26/2002Employee'S Jaw Fractured When Struck By Flying Chain
On September 26, 2002, Employee #1, a laborer, was assigned to a crew that was clearing a vacant lot. When Employee #1 arrived at the site, he drove a Bobcat skip loader up to a nearby tree that was to be removed. Employee #1 wrapped one end of a chain around one of the trunks and the other end around the Bobcat bucket. As Employee #1 began to back up, the chain snapped and the loose end whipped around, hitting the outside of the vehicle's cab and striking Employee #1 in the face. Employee #1 sustained a fractured jaw and the loss of several teeth. A coworker transported Employee #1 to the hospital, where he was hospitalized for three days.
