Fall From Mower

The employee was mowing with a walk behind mower with a "velke" attached.  While he was mowing the "velke" came disconnected (pin came unhinged) causing him to lose his balance and fall backwards, striking his lower back on a curb.

Factors to consider at your site or on your project include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Inspect all connections on velke attachements.

Contact manufacturer about other types of ride along attachments
