Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 200535953
Event: 07/11/2013
Employee Falls From Ladder Into Tank, Later Dies

On July 11, 2013, Employee #1 was constructing a metal liquid fertilizer tank. He unhooked a steel sheet-clamping device. The rigging hardware used to erect the tank caught a ladder that he was occupying, which caused him to lose his balance and fall into the tank. He fell approximately 36 ft, striking his head and sustaining head injuries inside the tank. Employee #1 was transported to a medical center, where he died 15 days later from head injuries sustained in the fall.

Keywords:head, rigging, ladder, fall, lost balance, tank
