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

Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970: The employer did not furnish employment and a place of employment free from recognized hazards that were causing, or likely to cause, death or serious physical harm to employees. On October 13, 2003 a worker was fatally injured while attempting to remove the counterweight from the backend of a Toyo Umpanki powered industrial truck. The worker was situated underneath the load when it fell, pinning the individual between the counterweight and the ground. Among other means, some feasible and acceptable abatement methods to correct this hazard are: 1.Develop, document, and utilize adequate procedural steps for securing the counterweight during its removal process. 2.Provide training to ensure that the knowledge and skills required for the safe removal of the counterweight are understood by those involved and affected by this process.
