Employee #1 was told to put the nylon sling around each platform so the platform could be lowered to the ground. Employee #1 was wearing a hard hat and a safety belt with a rebar hook. When employees attempted to lift the platform the left side would not release from the tie bar. Employee #1 unhooked the sling. The platform slid off the tie bar.
