At approximately 4:00 p.m. on October 26, 2010, Employee #1 was working for the concrete contractor Galletti & Sons, Inc., as a concrete finisher at a jobsite in San Francisco, CA. He had finished smoothing the upper surface of a recently poured slab. As he walked away, he stepped on some flashing that was adjacent to the concrete slab. The flashing buckled and gave way, causing him to fall. He tried to catch himself, but he landed on a trowel that had been left lying on its edge. Employee #1 sustained cuts to his right hand and arm. Another employee at the site alerted the foreman, who was at the site but not in direct view of Employee #1, and the foreman called for an ambulance. Employee #1 was hospitalized at San Francisco General Hospital until November 1, 2010. The Division did not issue any citations, because it found no violations of Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations.
