The "Incident Alerts" intended purpose is to raise awareness of workplace accidents, specifically the frequency in which they occur, with the hope that workers will begin to realize that accidents happen much more often than they think.  I breakdown the accidents into four (4) categories:  Industrial, Construction, Workplace Violence and Miscellaneous.  I only report accidents that occur at fixed facilities; no transportation accidents.

Industrial

LOTO/GUARDING FATALITY Worker killed in industrial accident at Virginia paper mill (worker, 44, was killed in an industrial accident at a paper mill about 9 p.m. - the 911 caller reported a man had fallen into a machine - the incident occurred in an area with a paper pulping machine)

FORKLIFT FATALITY Worker crushed to death by forklift in SF’s Dogpatch (worker, 45 to 50 years old, at a lumber supply company was crushed to death by a forklift he was operating outside the business just before 2 p.m. - forklift was still lying on its side late into the afternoon Monday, with the man’s body, covered by a yellow tarp, a couple of feet away - the forklift tipped over at the bottom of one of three ramps leading up to the company’s loading dock - a wooden pallet that had been loaded with bags of material was still stuck on the forklift)
