Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201034543Event: 08/25/2002Employee Is Injured In Fall When Forklift Struck Trash
At approximately 4:30 p.m. on August 25, 2002, Employee #1, a full-time housekeeper for a convention center, had just finished cleaning some restrooms. She was waiting behind her trash cart for the operator of a rented Hyster 1000 forklift, who was loading and removing exhibit materials, to pass through carrying a 55-gallon drum in the back. The forklift sped just past her and then made a quick left turn immediately in front of her, causing the 55-gallon drum to hit Employee #1's Rubbermaid trash cart. The trash cart struck her and lifted her into the air. She fell 6 ft away from her original position, her head striking the floor as she landed. Employee #1 sustained multiple head injuries, and was hospitalized for a month. The forklift operator failed to compensate for the extended load on the back of his equipment and increase his turning radius.
