Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 201572229
Event: 10/22/2002
Employee Injured After Falling From Scaffolding

On October 22, 2002, Employee #1, a carpenter, was working with a crew of four to move approximately six 20-ft-long by 27-ft-high sections of scaffolding. The employer used a tower crane to move the scaffolding from one side of an excavation to another. The crew was instructed to climb the scaffolding using duel lanyard attached to a harness and scaffolding framework. Employee #1 climbed the scaffolding to rig it for the move; climbed down prior to the move; and then ascended it again to take off the rigging. The employee was on his way down when he fell approximately 22 ft. Employee #1 had climbed down the cross bracing, attached to a "sway bar" with his lanyard and his sway bar was not adequately secured, so when the employee fell, the lanyard gave way and he fell to the ground. Employee #1 was hospitalized.
