Text For Citation: 01 Item/Group: 001 Hazard:

Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970: The employer did not furnish employment and a place of employment which were free from recognized hazards that were causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees in that employees were exposed to crushing and struck-by hazards. (a) On or about March 13, 2020, an employee was rigging a concrete panel weighing 6,800 pounds to be lifted by a 40 ton capacity bridge crane with hoist and chain sling. The panel was supported by two (2) concrete A-frame panel stands and wood cribbing. During the rigging process the wireless radio controlled pendant transmitter, that controls motion of the crane was unintentionally operated before the concrete panel was properly rigged, causing the chain sling to catch on a metal gusset cast into back side of the panel, and caused the panel to lift slightly, tip over, and flip off of the A- frame concrete panel stand, resulting in the front side rigging employee being struck by and caught between the concrete panel and the concrete floor.
