Accident Summary Nr: 201113750 - Employee Is Killed When He Falls Through Skylight
|Inspection Nr||Date Opened||SIC||NAICS||Establishment Name|
Abstract: On May 23, 2002, Employee #1 and three coworkers were on a roof using flexible blade leaf rakes to clean up scrap cardboard. The cardboard littered the roof because the local exhaust ventilation from the cutting machines exhausted cardboard scrap up to a cyclone on the roof. Two or three times a year workers clean up the debris. Employees were not provided any form of fall protection and the skylights were not guarded. Employee #1 was working in the hot sun when coworkers saw him wipe his forehead with his hand, lay down his rake, and then start to sit down on a skylight. Coworkers later reported hearing glass breaking. Employee #1 fell 25 ft through the skylight onto the concrete pavement inside the warehouse and was killed.
