At approximately 10:00 a.m. on June 4, 2012, an employee was installing a phone/networking equipment cabinet on an elevated mezzanine, approximately 8.5 feet above the adjacent ground level. The phone/networking equipment cabinet was approximately 29 inches from the edge of the mezzanine and the employee used an unsecured extension ladder for access.

At 10:00 a.m. coworkers heard a crash and found the employee and the ladder on the floor. Employee #1 sustained blunt force trauma to his head. On June 6, 2012, the employee died as a result of his injuries.
