On November 15, 2006, Employee #1 was operating a forklift to relocate a welding machine. A malfunction occurred and Employee #1 exited the forklift to evaluate the situation. With the forklift in-gear and running, Employee #1 attempted to walk alongside the forklift while using his left hand to press the gas pedal and his right hand to steer the forklift in reverse. The welding machine was still attached to one of the forks and he was in close proximity to a building. As he maneuvered the forklift, he steered too close to one of the walls of the building and caught his neck between the overhead support of the forklift and the building. Employee #1 was killed.
