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 Analytic Stress Relieving, Inc. in Freeport, Texas

DATE: 01/09/19

An employee was working on a scaffold setting up a 30″ pipe for pre-heat. The pipe was tack-welded where the set-up was taking place. Workers on the other end of the pipe removed the pipe fitting dogs, and 15 minutes later the tack welds at the set-up area failed. The employee’s lanyard was between the pipe and the scaffold deck at the time. When the tack weld failed, this caused the pipe to fall and pinch the employee’s left knee against the pipe, cracking the fibula.
