Employee #1 and a coworker, both laborers, were spreading and leveling a concrete floor that was being poured on the mezzanine level 11 ft above the ground. Corrugated steel decking was being used as a form. Because the non-shored span of 8 ft 7 in. was unable to support the weight of the concrete, the steel decking collapsed. The two laborers fell to the ground and Employee #1 was treated for concrete in his eyes.
