Abstract
A horticulture wholesale nursery owner died when he slipped and fell off a tractor he was loading onto a trailer. The victim had driven the tractor up on the trailer and was climbing out of the cab of the tractor when he slipped and fell approximately eight feet to the asphalt ground below. The victim was wearing western style boots with smooth soles when the incident occurred. The CA/FACE investigator determined that, in order to prevent future occurrences, employers of horticultural nursery workers should provide employees with proper skid or slip resistant protective footwear.
