At approximately 2:50 p.m. on September 29, 2011, Employee #1 and two coworkers were disassembling and assembling concrete cast forms, outside, under the sun, with no shade. There were 6 full rows and 20 full columns of concrete cast forms and one partial row of 8 concrete cast forms. The employees prepared 8 concrete cast forms and then poured concrete from the concrete truck. Employee #1 was working with a concrete cast form in the second row, fourth concrete cast form from the right. Employee #1 walked 73.58 feet to the truck to get two bottles of water.
