Employee #1 was trying to widen a wall opening in the side of a grain elevator headhouse. He was wearing a full body harness and shock-absorbing lanyard and had his lanyard hook fastened to a vertical material hoisting line. He fell approximately 80 ft to the ground and was killed. The method of tie-off provided no fall protection; when he fell, the lanyard hook simply slid down the hoisting line. When Employee #1 struck the ground, the lanyard hook was still attached to the hoisting line.
