Blackwater Construction
Details of Incident / Close Call: 

A processor operator was exiting the cab. The door swung closed. The handle was bent towards the door, not leaving enough room for his hand as the door closed. This resulted in a hard impact to his knuckles.

Learnings and Suggestions: 

Replace bent handle with hydraulic hose.
All operators are asked to take time while exiting their machine. As well, park on level ground so you do not have the heavy door swinging at you.
