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: Struck by falling object or equipment, n.e.c. at OXBOW CALCINING LLC in Port Arthur, Texas

DATE: 03/30/17

Three employees were in a large interior area underneath a concrete silo. They were moving a screw conveyor housing out of the way in an area where they were planning to install a new screw conveyor flight. As they pushed the screw conveyor housing across the concrete floor, the front vertical angle iron support broke at the welded connection to the housing. As the housing fell approximately 21 inches to the ground, the injured employee’s right foot was caught underneath and fractured. The injury required surgery and hospitalization.
