Employee Seriously Injured In Fall From Elevated Rack

At 7:50 a.m., on February 5, 2002, Employee #1 and a coworker worked at a warehouse for a large furniture and appliance retail concern. Employee #1 and the coworker gained access to the elevated storage rack via a mobile powered lift platform, and were unloading television sets from the lift truck to a storage rack. Employee #1 and the coworker were wearing fall protection harnesses but they were not tied. The employer did not complete the bolting down upgrade of the racks upon which Employee #1 and the coworker were working. The grates were loose and unstable to walk on. The mesh shelving grate upon which Employee #1 and the coworker were standing gave way and both employees, as well as several television sets, fell simultaneously to a cement floor from a height of 24 ft 6 in. Employee #1 sustained serious injuries including trauma to the head and required an airlift to a trauma unit. Employee #1 was in a coma. The coworker walked away with bruises and a strained back.
