On September 30, 1991, Employee #1, a journeyman iron worker, fell approximately 16 ft when he rode collapsing structural steel to the floor. He sustained a hairline fracture to one leg. Employee #1 was treated in the emergency room of the on-site hospital (doctor's medical center), then released that same evening to convalesce at home. The investigation disclosed that one end of the beam that fell was securely attached to a fully triangulated column. The other end was attached to a free-standing square tube column that was bolted to an angle iron and welded temporarily to a steel insert in the deck. This attachment did not provide sufficient strength and resistance to keep the column and the attached beam from rolling and falling.
