Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 108472.015Event: 05/09/2017Forklift Brakes Fail, Injuring Employee'S Leg
At 10:45 a.m. on May 9, 2017, an employee finished loading a trailer using a Cro wn forklift (model number: RC3020-30, serial number: 1AZ04438), which he was par king. As the employee maneuvered the forklift, he was unable to stop it. He made several attempts to stop the forklift, including plugging the forklift and acti vating the deadman pedal. The employee then put his left leg out to push off a p ole/upright, resulting in his left leg being crushed between the pole/upright an d the forklift. The employee sustained compartment syndrome to the lower portion of his left leg. As a result, the employee was hospitalized and received treat ment for his injury. Further inspection of the forklift identified that its righ t side adjuster rod was missing, causing the brakes to not operate correctly.
