Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 93679.015
Event: 03/06/2017
Employee Falls 25 Feet Off Of Fixed Ladder And Is Killed

At 1:22 p.m. on March 6, 2017, Employee #1, a temporary employee, and a coworker were preparing to go up to the roof to install mesh nylon cloth around the skyl ights that had holes and cracks. The two employees were using a 30 foot fixed ca ged metal ladder located in a hatchway in the southeast corner of the warehouse section of the facility. The coworker went up on the roof via the hatchway openi ng, carrying all of the repair materials and tools. Employee #1 did not come up the ladder, so the coworker went back to the opening to try to see where he was. The coworker heard loud banging noises and shaking of the ladder cage, like som ething was hitting its walls. As the coworker looked down through the hatchway o pening, Employee #1 was laying on the floor by the ladder in a pool of blood. Em ployee #1 had fallen approximately 25 feet through the caged 30 foot metal ladde r. The coworker called for help and emergency medical services responded. Employ ee #1 sustained head trauma and skull fractures and was pronounced dead at the s cene. Upon questioning, the employer did not provide training and instruction to Employee #1 on the safe use of ladders, climbing and working on ladders, user's position, points of contact with the ladder and factors contributing to falls.
