Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 103836.015Event: 02/20/2018Employee Is Crushed And Killed By Falling Steel Tubing
At 11:45 a.m. on February 20, 2018, an employee parked his truck in an establishments unloading area in preparation for unloading its contents. After removing a set of canvas straps that secured the load, he used a forklift to unloaded a bundle of steel from the truck's trailer and placed it several yards away. Soon after, the employee left his forklift to retrieve a tag from the first bundle and, upon returning to the loading area, began putting away the straps he had been using. As the employee was bent over, a coworker that was operating a second forklift to move a long bundle of steel tubing, inadvertently struck him. The employee was crushed by several thousand pounds of steel tubing and was killed instantly.
