Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201058559Event: 03/30/2004Employee Fractures Nose When Struck By Crane Hook
At 2:45 p.m. on March 30, 2004, an accident occurred at Unite Steel Industries, Inc., a structural steel, metal deck fabricator and erector in Los Angeles, California. Employee #1 was a welder with 3 years of experience in the trade. The equipment involved in the accident was the 2-ton capacity overhead Shaw-Box crane. The accident occurred in the fabrication department. On the day of the accident, Employee #1 was assigned to move a steel I-beam with the crane. Employee #1 attached the I-beam directly onto the crane hook. The cause of the accident was that Employee #1 attached the load directly onto the hook instead of using a sling to securely attach the load to the crane hook. While raising the load, the I-beam slid off and the hook hit Employee #1, resulting in a broken nose. Employee #1 was taken to White Memorial Hospital, where he was admitted, treated for his injuries and released three days after being admitted.
