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: Injured by slipping or swinging object held by other person at Tyson Poultry, Inc. in Pine Bluff, Arkansas

DATE: 10/30/19

An employee was going to use a water hose to remove chicken debris from the floor inside the further processing oven room. As the water valve was turned to the on position, the pressure from the hose caused it to slip out of the employee’s hands and the end of the hose made contact with the left eye of another employee standing nearby. The eye injury required surgery.
