Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 118857.015Event: 08/08/2019Employee Is Killed When Struck By Falling Panel
At 9:05 a.m. on August 8, 2019, Employee #1, employed by a construction company, was working at a multiemployer construction project, a two-story cold storage facility. He was directing the installation of cold storage panels to a wall, which involved raising the panels 16 feet with a 55-ton Terex Crane. The panels, each weighing approximately 490 pounds and measuring approximately 49 feet long, 42 inches wide, and 3 inches thick, were attached to the crane by a bail. However, the bail was not properly screwed into one panel, and as that panel was lifted, it came loose and fell. The falling panel struck Employee #1's head. The employee, who was not wearing a hard hat, was killed.
