Abstract: On April 24, 2009, Employee #1 and a coworker, both industrial engineers, were doing a walk through of a nearly completed aircraft paint booth ventilation project. Employee #1 opened a door and entered a walkway of a ventilation plenum. The plenum walkway area was not illuminated because the filters had been installed. Employee #1 walked into the walkway and fell six feet through an open floor grating. The coworker and other employees called for emergency services. Emergency services arrived on the scene and extracted Employee #1 from the pit. He was transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital, where he was admitted for his injuries.
