Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 128467.015
Event: 08/06/2020
Employee Is Struck By Falling Crane Jib And Is Killed

At 8:15 a.m. on August 6, 2020, Employee #1 and coworkers, a crew employed by a structural steel construction company, were working at a multi-employer construc tion project, a four-story commercial building. Employee #1 was directing the c rew while they set up a jib crane. A storm with lightning was approaching, so t hree blasts on an alert horn alerted the employees to shut everything down, get off the building, and take cover. Employee #1 approached the crane operator to alert him. An oiler was working at the top of the crane boom to set up the jib. Someone yelled up to the oiler to tell him not to pull the pin. Apparently th e oiler misheard and thought he was being instructed to pull the pin, which he p roceeded to do. The jib, weighing 6,600 pounds, fell and struck Employee #1. E mployee #1 was killed.
