Employee #1 works as an iron worker erecting steel structures. Employee #1 was separating bar joists (metal joists for roof supports) that were sticking together. Suddenly, one bar joist came loose and fell. Employee #1 began to step back when he felt his safety harness contact something. He hesitated, moving his feet, and the joist fell on his toe. Flagging tape placed to warn of a cross brace is what Employee #1 felt tugging at his safety harness. Employee #1 stated he was aware that he could have stepped back but hesitated when he felt contact.
