Employee Dies In Fall From Communication Tower

On August 12, 2013, Employee #1 and a coworker, who was a trainee, were troubleshooting a radio system on a communication tower. The coworker climbed the tower to troubleshoot the system, while Employee #1 remained below to prepare the new component for installation. After verifying radio failure, Employee #1 climbed to show the trainee how to disconnect the old radio and rig the new system. After reaching the upper platform at a height of approximately 200 ft, Employee #1 sat for a moment to rest from the climb. He then moved to tie off and found that a carabiner was on his positioning carabiner (lanyard). He leaned against the T-boom to remove the carabiner, when he slipped to his right, falling 200 ft and landing on his back in pea gravel. Employee #1 was killed in the fall.
