Last month, a forklift accident landed an employee at a medical manufacturing factory in a Boston hospital. The unidentified worker was injured while operating the forklift, which tipped over and spilled hazardous materials, including hydraulic fluid and sulfuric battery acid.
The worker reportedly came in contact with the hazardous chemicals, but most of the injuries were from the forklift tipping. The Mansfield Fire Chief said the worker sustained serious injuries to the ribs, hips, and legs.
Emergency responders apparently halted the company’s operations while they cleaned up the spill. Fire crews from Foxboro assisted Mansfield fire crews.
