Three employees were working on the construction of a downspout on the upper bin level of a new grain elevator. A welder had completed a flange weld and had untied the ladder on his way down. The welder was repositioning the ladder to work on a different spout. Employee #1, who was not tied off with his belt, apparently stood on the ladder at the same time the welder was descending. When the welder reached the floor level, the ladder slipped and Employee #1 fell 23 ft and landed on his head. Employee #1 required hospitalization.
