Employed by ABC Company, Robert Martin and another man were on the lift working when it suddenly lurched forward and pinned Martin between its control panel and the edge of the roof. The 35-year-old foreman and father of three was pronounced dead at the scene. His co-worker was able to crawl out of the lift’s basket and then fell nearly three stories, suffering multiple fractures in his left leg.

The workers were rehabilitating a Chevy dealership on Apple City.

OSHA opened its investigation upon learning of the fatal incident. On March 23, 2016, the agency issued citations to ABC Company for one repeated and four serious safety violations. Proposed penalties total $63,900.

“ABC Company could have prevented this tragedy by simply inspecting the lift before allowing its workers to use it,” said Brian Sturtecky, director of OSHA’s Jacksonville Area Office. “This company must immediately address safety hazards at its work sites and be vigilant in the future to protect its employees from harm.”

OSHA issued one repeated citation for not ensuring that workers wore and attached a body belt or lanyard while using an aerial lift.

The serious citations related to the following OSHA standards:

29 CFR 1904 Section 5(a)(1)
