At approximately 10:00 a.m. on December 7, 2001, Employee #1 was assisting coworkers connecting a structural cross member to a vertical column. The column was approximately 35 in. high. The two coworkers were working from a scissor lift. The lift had been lowered and Employee #1, positioned on the ground, stepped onto a .375-in. lug on the support column and handed a come-along and a length of chain to his two coworkers in the lift. Employee #1 jumped down from the lug but did not clear it. Employee #1 struck the lug and received a severe laceration to the groin area. Employee #1 stated he stepped up on the lug rather than waiting for the lift to come down. He was hospitalized.
