At approximately 11:00 a.m. on April 22, 1997, Employee #1, a window cleaner for Bay Area Maintenance, was working at a site in Hayward, CA, when the boatswain's chair he was using fell four stories to the ground. He suffered a fractured back and was immediately transported to Eden Medical Center. Apparently, the O-ring connection had not been checked, and its failure caused the chair to fall. The employer was cited for a serious, accident-related violation of T8CCR 3286(a)(2) and T8CCR 3286(a)(4).
