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 OMNI Specialty Packaging, LLC in Shreveport, Louisiana

DATE: 06/12/18

The employee exited the loading dock and went down the stairs next to the container to observe the seal being put on the container. While waiting for the truck to pull forward he noticed that the right side container door was swinging out and was going to strike the yellow bollard pole at the base of the stairs. In an attempt to keep that from happening, he stepped between the door and pole to push the door out of the way. The door struck him in the chest and pushed him back into the pole. The weight of the door pinned him against the yellow bollard pole causing a bruised lung and a liver laceration.
