Employee #1 was watching loaves of bread to see that they correctly entered the slicer. He was also responsible for resetting the blades and making other adjustments when a different size loaf was to enter the slicer. Instead of looking up at the new loaves which were on the cooling racks, Employee #1 climbed the side of a portable bread rack to the third rung, 23 in. above the hardwood floor, to remove a loaf of the new size bread to measure the blade adjustment. He fell backward off the bread rack and landed on the right side of his head. Employee #1 died 12 days later of brain damage. Climbing the bread rack is not permitted.
