Case Report from OSHA files
- An employee fell about 60 feet through the decking of a work platform on a tubular welded frame scaffold. The decking consisted of plywood sheets, 4' x
8' by 3/4" thick, covering an opening about 28" wide x 24' long. They were not overlapped over the supporting sides, were not secured, and
were not strong enough to hold the weight of the victim, who was killed by the fall.
