A crew of employees was dismantling a scaffold in an adjacent room and there was limited access around the scaffold where other employees were installing a block wall above. The employees were not protected, and tools, materials, or equipment were piled to a height higher than the top edge of the toe board. Apparently, the screening did not extend from the toe board or platform to the top of the guardrail. One coworker was moving and storing material above where the Employee #1 was working. A 6-in. block was displaced and struck Employee #1 on his head. Employee #1 sustained lacerations but was not hospitalized.
