Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200611812Event: 11/10/2004Trash Container Falls On Employee Killing Him
At approximately noon on November 10, 2004, two North Branch Construction, Inc. employees were removing trash and debris from a building with a forklift and a wooden trash container. The construction site was located in Londonderry, New Hampshire. Waste debris and garbage were typically loaded into a trash container, and a forklift was used to lift and transport the container to a dumpster. The forklift was a Komatsu (model FG25T-14, serial number 581712A). The container measured approximately 50 inches by 98 inches, and was 44 inches high. The trash container weighed approximately 500 pounds and was built onto a pallet. The employees were removing metal ductwork when an accident occurred. The site superintendent (Employee #1) was operating the forklift. Employee #1 traveled from the interior of a building, down a ramp to the dumpster. At that point, Employee #2 arrived to assist. The container was raised to the edge of the dumpster where the Employee #2 was going to help remove the waste materials. While in the process of removing the waste, Employee #2 climbed into the container. Employee #1 observed the container shift to his left. Employee #2 fell out of the trash container and hit his head on the ground. The container then tipped over and struck him in the face. The employee died from his injuries.
