Abstract
A 54-year-old packer in a manufacturing facility died when a pipe rolled off an overhead storage rack and struck him on the back of the head. The pneumatic stops that usually hold the pipes in place were not up when the incident occurred. The company's Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) was printed in English, and the victim spoke Mandarin and some English. 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 that safety measures are in place to prevent pipes from rolling off a storage rack to a bundling table prior to anyone entering the area. 2. Develop, implement, and enforce a written hazardous energy control program for the area under the pipe storage rack.
