At 9:30 a.m. on April 21, 2018, Employee #1, employed by a roofing company, was engaged in roofing repair and maintenance work at a one-story multifamily residence. The roof had an 8:12 pitch, and its surface was covered with 30-pound felt paper still moist from the morning dew. Employee #1's assigned task was to install a metal nosing and a starter at the roof's edge. Employee #1 was wearing fall protection equipment and was tied to an anchor on the roof's ridge. As Employee #1 walked on the roof's surface, he slipped, fell, and struck the ground, a fall height of approximately 9 feet or more. Emergency services were called, and Employee #1 was transported to the hospital. He was admitted and treated for a fractured left knee that required surgery and fractured shoulder. Both Employee #1 and a coworker who came to his aid after he fell stated that the rope was long that attached Employee #1 to the anchor.
