At 2:50 p.m. on May 3, 2017, Employee #1, a new apprentice and Coworker #1, empl oyed by a steel reinforcing company, were working at a multiemployer constructio n project for a storage building. It was Employee #1's third day working for th e employer. They were in a trench/ditch and assembling steel rebar reinforcemen ts for the building's footings. Employee #1 had been working since 9:00 a.m. T hroughout the day, he and Coworker #1 had been moving 30-foot-long Number 5 reba r, each weighing approximately 30 pounds, plus other materials. They had been p lacing the rebar in trenches and then tying them. Just prior to the incident, E mployee #1 and Coworker #1 had each moved 30 rebar, six bars per load, and plac ed them in a trench. As they began tying the bars, Coworker #1 saw that Employe e #1 was slouched over, able to respond verbally but unable to move. Site worke rs carried Employee #1 to an unfinished construction shade structure, where Empl oyee #1 lost consciousness.

He was admitted and treated for heat strok e and renal (kidney) failure. The subsequent investigation determined that Empl oyee #1 had rehydrated during a morning work break.
