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: Fall or jump curtailed by personal fall arrest system at Sid Richardson Carbon Co in Addis, Louisiana

DATE: 12/07/17

An employee was grabbing samples on a railcar. As he stood up, he slipped and fell chest downward, then began to slide on the downward slope of the car. He then attempted to turn his body and grab something but went over the side of the car. The webbing attached to the locking snap hook on his safety harness D-ring popped, and he felt a jerk before landing on the ground feet first and suffering an injury.
