Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 593798 Event: 08/31/1994Employee Killed In Fall From Genie Chair
Employee #1 was painting the inside of a water tank. He was sitting in a Genie chair that was being held up by two sets of 5/8 in. rope falls, one on each end of the chair. The line either slipped out of Employee #1's hands as he raised or lowered the chair, or the knot came untied. The Genie chair fell, dumping him out along side of the bowl, down through the combing to the start of the riser. He was caught by a cable stretched across the riser and the 8 in. city water supply pipe, which runs up the riser. Employee #1 sustained a concussion and was killed.
