Summary Nr: 202522637Event: 06/22/2012Machine Operator Falls When Scissor Lift Overturns
On June 22, 2012, Employee #1, of Bluewater Environmental Services, Inc., was working at a commercial building demolition project. He was using an electric saw while positioned inside an extended scissor lift. Employee #1 had tied the saw's extension cord to the scissor lift platform, with the remaining cord running down the side of the lift and along the ground. Coworker #1 was driving a Bobcat machine. The Bobcat drove over the cord, and the cord caught on the underside of the machine. As the Bobcat continued to move, the cord tightened and pulled the scissor lift over. Employee #1 fell approximately 20 feet. He was hospitalized with unspecified serious injuries including a fracture.
