On May 17, 2019, Employee #1, employed by a roofing company, was assigned to install shingles on a two-story residence's dormer roof. The dormer roof was approximately 12 inches wide, and Employee #1 had placed a board on that part of the roof to serve as a work platform while he placed the shingles. Employee #1 used a 32-foot extension ladder to access the dormer roof. As he moved off the ladder and onto the roof, he fell, a fall height of approximately 25 feet. He was not using fall protection when he fell. Emergency services transported Employee #1 to the hospital, where he died approximately four hours after the fall.
