Line of Fire: Being in harm’s way

Line of fire injuries occur when the path of a moving object and an individual’s body intersect

Five Examples of being in the line of fire:

  • In the path of moving equipment
  • Underneath a lifted load or objects that could fall
  • Working next to unstable material that could shift
  • Working next to objects under tension
  • Placing hands in equipment that could rotate
