Abstract
A 50-year-old security guard died when he was run over by a heavy-duty industrial forklift used to top load cargo containers. He was directing traffic in the yard at the time of the incident. This was part of his normal duties. The forklift operator did not follow the victimís traffic directions. The victim had no formal training in traffic control. The CA/FACE investigator determined that, in order to prevent future occurrences, employers, as part of their Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP), should: 1. Ensure forklift operators follow the directions of workers directing traffic. 2. Consider installing structures that would ensure protection to employees on foot in the area of forklifts. 3. Ensure that employees directing traffic have formal training in traffic control.
