Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 14500425 Event: 04/30/1990Employee Severs Spine In Ceiling Collapse
Employee #1 was standing 10 ft from the ground on a suspended cement mortar plastered ceiling that was 12 ft 8 in. wide by 38 ft long. The ceiling was held by 36 tie wires (12 rows of 3 each). Employee #1's job was to remove the ceiling section but when he cut the first row of wires the resulting stress was too much for the second through twelfth rows of tie wires, and the entire ceiling section fell to the floor. Employee #1 fell with the ceiling and, as the west end struck a one ring high scaffold, the ceiling section hinged over and sandwiched him between slabs, severing his spinal cord. The unsafe removal procedure stressed the ceiling.
