Tree Branch and Rollover Bar Cause Injury

Employee was cutting grass at a dog park.  The employee noticed a low hanging branch in the path and attempted to raise the branch above the rollover bar.  The employee's thumb got caught between the branch and the rollover bar.

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

1) Periodically check areas to ensure that conditions have not changed when performing routine work outside.

2) Periodically supervisors need to discuss changing conditions and area hazards when the crew is performing routine tasks.
