This OSHA Injury Report was compiled directly from data that is publicly available from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA Injury Reports can be helpful in understanding the types of workplace injury claims involving defective products or malfunctioning equipment in the workplace. 

The manufacturers of defective equipment or machinery resulting in a worker injury may be found to be negligent and liable for damages in a separate civil lawsuit. You may be able to recover damages on top of a workers’ comp claim if injured in a job accident caused, in part, by a third party. These third party personal injury cases should be given responsible legal guidance.

Trammell Piazza Law Firm claims no responsibility for any errors or inconsistencies in OSHA’s data.

Report: Compressed or pinched by shifting objects or equipment at OIL STATES INDUSTRIES in Lampasas, Texas

DATE: 09/15/16

An employee was attempting to remove a molded 27.5-inch rubber part from the mold using an overhead crane and a push-out barrel. When he raised the part and the core mold with the crane, he reached up under the part to apply more 4×4 wooden blocks. The part then slipped off the core, pinning his right arm between the part and the push-out barrel. He suffered a broken arm and hand, as well as a forearm burn, and required surgery.
