On November 19, 2005, Employee #1 and a coworker were installing house wrap around the exterior of a single family residential home. After ninety percent of the job had been done, they had to finish a portion at the front of the home, where there was a large pile of debris. To prevent the house wrap from becoming wrinkled while unrolling it outside in the debris, they chose to unroll it in the interior of the home. Walking backwards, Employee #1 unrolled the wrap, and fell into an unguarded floor opening which was 3-ft by 13-ft by 11-ft. He died as a result of the fall.
