Details of Incident / Close Call: 

Logging truck drive was at the bundle station
• compressor is on a elevated flat deck trailer
• set up so rope was on shorter width way on deck
• truck driver had been trained at the station
• when he pulled the cord it broke
• he fell off the side of the trailer (4 ft.) and landed on his upper back, neck and lower head

Learnings and Suggestions: 

The following actions were done to prevent a reoccurrence
•the compressor was turned length ways on the flat deck trailer so if anyone should fall for any reason they would not fall off the edge
•the compressor stand was nailed down so it could not be changed
•step by step bundle wire applying instructions will be added to the logging truck driver’s JSB’s
