In May of 2015 a worker at Tomra Recycling, a facility located in Schenectady, New York suffered a compound leg fracture after being struck by a forklift.
At the time of the incident the worker was operating a baler in a company aisle. According to OSHA the aisle wasn’t wide enough to allow safe passage of the forklift, thus causing the injury.
OSHA also found the forklift involved in the incident and four others to be defective by OSHA Powered Industrial Truck standards.
