Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 202542148Event: 11/24/2010Employee Is Injured In Fall From Elevated Aircraft Loader
At 2:11 a.m. on November 24, 2010, Employee #1, a ramp worker who was employed by a commercial airline and had no supervisory responsibilities, was working at Gate Number 52A of Terminal 5 at Los Angeles International Airport. Ramp operations include loading and unloading luggage on aircraft, as well as parking and towing aircraft. Employee #1 walked out onto the elevator portion of the Commander Loader, which was elevated approximately 7.5 feet above the ground. He fell off the loader and sustained a head trauma, facial contusions, and fractured ribs. Employee #1 was transported to Harbor General in Torrance for immediate treatment, and he was hospitalized there for nine days, until December 2, 2010. The employer reported the accident to DOSH (Division of Occupational Safety and Health) at 4:00 a.m. on November 24, 2010. Cal/OSHA determined that the accident was caused by failure to have identified the fall hazard and have provided appropriate training. Cal/OSHA decided to issue a serious, accident-related citation to the employer for failure to have provided an alternate means of protecting employees from falling.
