At 4:00 p.m. on April 27, 2018, Employee #1 and a coworker, employed by a roofing company, were working at the site of a two-story house with both a first-story roof and a second-story roof. A ladder was set up that allowed them to access both roofs. They were installing oriented strand board (OSB) decking onto existing plywood decking. Employee #1, carrying a sheet of decking that measured 48 inches by 48 inches, climbed the ladder and stepped onto the second-floor roof. He stepped on a loose piece of plywood, tripped, and fell, first impacting the first-story roof and then continuing to fall and striking the ground. Employee #1 was transported to the hospital, where he was admitted and treated for a fractured femur.
