the headset operator was distracted for undetermined reasons during pushback at Phoenix and was run over by nose wheel. Ground witnesses said he failed to maintain a position at least 10 feet from the airplane's nose wheel as his employer required. The headset operator was in charge of the pushback, and was hired in the previous month and completed the operator's course of ramp safety/pushback instruction. This was his first unsupervised experience.
