Employee Killed In Fall When Ladder Collapses

Employee #1 used a metal, variable-position, non-self-supporting folding ladder to reach an 8 ft high roof eave and inspect the roof. The ladder collapsed and he fell backward, striking his head on the concrete driveway. Employee #1 was killed. The ladder's spring-actuated hinge locks were apparently not fully engaged due to wear or lack of lubrication.
