At 1:30 p.m. on October 5, 2020, Employees #1, #2, and #3, employed by a precast concrete and structural steel company, were installing precast concrete stairs for a new 15-story commercial building, a multi-employer construction project. They were on the 13th and 14th floors and adjusting the stairs for proper elevat ion. The employees were using a 20-foot webbed sling and two 3-ton chain hoists . The stairs below the 13th floor had been installed, including necessary weldi ng. The stairs on the 13th and 14th floors were not yet welded or secured.
