At about 8:00 a.m. on April 9, 2013, Employee #1, with Rocket Farms Herbs, was assisting a coworker, a tractor operator, while the tractor (Kubota; Model Number: 9000; Mudder tractor; Serial Number: 64783) was pulling a metal greenhouse structure post (approximately 6 ft long) out of the ground. In addition to the tractor, the post was removed using a Post machine (ID 891-70; Serial Number: 092850-R1). Employee #1 was attempting to help pull out the post, as it was stuck.
