Abstract: On June 24, 1985, Employee #1 was on a platform that had been erected on the side of a 20,000-gallon water tank, 38 ft 8 in. above the roof of a manufacturing plant. The platform collapsed, killing Employee#1. Subsequent investigation revealed that one of the platform supports had broken, causing the platform to collapse. This accident could have been prevented if the employer had tested the platform supports to determine their load capacity and had provided a safety net or safety belts and lifeline for Employee #1.
