At approximately 11:30 a.m. on December 17, 2003, Employee #1, a boiler operator was replacing a fan in a boiler from a fixed ladder. He first tied a rope to the fan and tried to pull the fan up to the location for its installment; however, the fan struck the wall as it was being raised. To prevent the fans from being damaged, he then decided to carry the fan on the ladder. He took a hold of the fan and started the climb upon the ladder, but lost his balance as he approached the top of the ladder. He fell 13-ft striking the ground and sustaining fractures in his left lower leg. After being taken to the hospital, he received medical treatment and postoperative care for which he was hospitalized.
