Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200541803Event: 10/20/2008Employee Is Crushed Between Chipper Frame And Chute
On October 20, 2008, Employee #1, an operator of a Morbark Wood Chipper, and a coworker, a laborer, were clearing the clogged chipper interior of the chipper hood and chute area. The coworker cleared the chute area, while it was in the open position. As the labor was sent atop of the chipper hood to release the hood pins, Employee #1 placed himself between the chipper hood frame and the open chute of the machine. He inadvertently moved the handle with his body, while clearing the wood from inside the chipper area. Since the chute was not locked out, it lowered onto Employee #1, pinning and crushing him between the chipper frame and chute of the chipper. Employee #1 was killed.
