At approximately 8:00 a.m. on September 10, 1998, Employee #1 was injured when he fell from a platform. At the time of accident, Employee #1 was working on a platform called a tooling fixture. The height of the platform was 81 in. The platform encompassed a very large area and was portable only if it had wheels. The platform also had detachable railings. Employee #1 was working in the area where the wing of an airplane was situated so that he could work underneath and guardrails could not be used. Employees #1 used a creeper to move under the wing while he was working on it. This creeper was a shop aid platform and it was called a scaffold, although it was only 5-ft by 7-ft and 10-in tall. It had three metal planks with four wheels and was weighing 110 lb. There was a cramped area under the wing. Employee #1 was trying to move the scaffold when it got hung up on an electrical cord. Employee #1 and the scaffold fell off the platform to the ground level. Employee #1 sustained bruises, contusions, and abrasions. He was hospitalized for two days for observations.
