Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201350915 Event: 01/25/2000Employee Killed When Struck By A Falling Load
On January 25, 2000, Employee #1, an independent truck driver, arrived at construction site with a load of metal decking for a roof of a grocery store building. A coworker of the general contractor, Kelsey Construction, Inc., received permission to use Caterpillar TH83 Telescopic Handler (Land Lull) industrial truck to unload the metal decking from the truck trailer. A subcontractor at the work site permitted the coworker to use the industrial truck without first ensuring that he had successfully completed the required training and evaluation regarding the operation of this type of industrial truck. The coworker used the Land Lull to unload the metal decking. The coworker initially tried to lift three bundles of decking, but the industrial truck could not lift this load, so he lifted two bundles at a time. Employee #1 was initially on the bed of the truck, acting as a spotter for the coworker. After several loads had been removed, Employee #1 moved from the truck bed to the ground. The accident occurred when the load apparently shifted and fell to the ground, striking Employee #1. He died of crushing injuries to the abdomen, which he sustained when he was struck by the falling load. The load measured 17-ft by 3-ft, and weighed approximately 7,600 lbs.
