Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970: The employer did not furnish employment which was free from recognized hazards that were causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees in that employees were exposed to a fall hazard while operating a vehicle-mounted elevated truck body without having the stabilizers fully extended: a)JFK Airport United Airlines Gate #10. Two employees were preparing to unload a vehicle-mounted elevated truck body that was raised 20' above the ground without having the stabilizers fully extended. The elevated truck body tipped over injuring one employee and killing the other; on or about 10/31/99.
