This is the information that goes on the report if you could all look at it and then add any other

Location of incident
Northwest corner of campus
Northeast entrance of WC Morris
Chewing Tobacco located near Shorty
In chipper expulsion blood and guts where found
Suspect wearing plaid shirt and blue jeans, working boots not steel toe
At around 11 am the safe team arrived to a taped off scene. The crew member in question was
located waist deep in side the wood chipper, deceased. Upon arrival there was one supervisor
on site, four crew members, and the husband of the deceased. The wood chipper was no longer
running and all crew members were stepped away from the chipper. The whole scene was on a
flat grade. The weather was 43 degrees fahrenheit and cloudy but there was no rain or moisture
that could have been a causal factor. The deceased crew member was wearing boots, blue
jeans, and a plaid shirt. About six feet away from the expelling port wood debra and chunks of
Analysis (what unsafe acts or conditions contributed to the incident)
There was multiple potential causal factors. All of the crew members stated Shorty was
not wearing any PPE. His clothing was loose fitting and no steel toes. The machine had no tire
chocks. With using a Wood Chipper a push board should be used to prevent reaching, there
was no push board in sight. All employees stated they don’t use them. For the start of the day
there is not any pre-work check off sheet to ensure everything works properly and all safety
procedures are put into place. Crew members believed he was using chewing tobacco for the
first time on scene. This will leave the user ill fit to function properly. The new found chewing
tobacco use was possibly caused by a peer pressure to fit in. The employee had only been
employed by the company for 3 months and may have had inadequate training. Based off of
information from the husband, Shorty had also been laid off from work for a year and had a lot
of pressure to bring home a paycheck.
Corrective action(s) (list correction action items, responsible person, scheduled completion
Supervisors will be retrained on their duties, emphasizing in enforcement of all safety
procedures and their involvement in each scene. This should be done within the next week and
the head of the training division should initiate this.
Long term employees will be reminded that all safety precautions will be used and that
supervisors are being retrained. Communications should be incharge of this and it will be sent
out immediately after the supervisors retraining
New Hire Training will be re-evaluated and considered for re-wrote, to see if there are
any ways the program could be improved. This will be done by the new hire trainer and must be
done before anyone else is hired..
