Abstract
A 17-year-old Hispanic male died when he was crushed by a forklift that rolled over on him. The victim had been employed with the company for only one hour and had not yet received safety training. The victim was attempting to retrieve some bales of hay for a customer when the incident occurred. The company kept the forklift keys in the ignition of the forklift during normal business hours. 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 employees under the age of 18 do not operate power-driven machinery. To accomplish this, employers should: 2. Establish a system to control access to power-driven machinery. 3. Identify and label equipment that is not to be operated by workers less than 18 years old. 4. Ensure that employee orientation and safety training is given to employees before they begin work.
