Employee #1 and a coworker were using a two-point suspension scaffold supported by aluminum davits to wash windows on a high-rise building. They had just completed a drop and were ascending to the porch on the thirty-eighth floor. They were nearly there when the left side of the scaffold dropped. Employee #1 fell and was killed. The workers were supplied with independent lifelines and both were wearing full body harnesses with lanyards, but Employee #1 was not attached to his lifeline.
