Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201140597Event: 12/30/1997Employee Gets Hit With Crowbar While Inflating Tire
On December 30, 1997, Employee #1, an industrial truck and tractor equipment operator for EZ Hauling and Environmental Services, was trying to inflate a tire on a Bobcat tractor. Employee #1 had a chain wrapped around the tire to compress the tire bead onto the rim and used a small crowbar to tighten the chain. Employee #1 asked a coworker to hold the crowbar in place while Employee #1 used a shop air compressor to put the air in the tire. As the tire inflated, the crowbar jumped out of place and hit Employee #1 in the head. Employee #1 suffered a serious head injury and was taken to UCI medical center for treatment.
