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 swinging or slipping object, other than handheld, n.e.c. at Manno Electric, Inc in Darrow, Louisiana

DATE: 12/12/17

An employee was installing 2×4 light fixtures into a ceiling grid. He measured how much tie wire he would need to secure the fixtures’ catty corner onto the ceiling grid. He realized he would need a taller ladder so he started coming down and decided to cut the wire he had measured out. The wire spool was sitting on top of the ladder he was using. When he cut the wire, the end sprang upwards and went between the bottom of his safety glasses and his face, puncturing his right eye.
