Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201523586Event: 07/07/2010Employees Suffer Multiple Fractures In Fall From Ladder
On July 7, 2010, Employee #1 and Employee #2, of Pace Industries Grafton Division, were stripping the existing shingles from a steep pitched roof while standing approximately 18 ft above the ground on a working platform of a ladder-jack scaffold. The employees placed the scaffold's ladder against an ornamental bracket, thinking it was part of the structure. Employee #1 and Employee #2 stood on the ladder together at the end of the roof, causing the ornamental bracket to break away from the house and the scaffold to collapse. Both Employee #1 and Employee #2 did not have any fall protection; they both fell to the ground. Employee #1 sustained life-threatening head injuries, while the Employee #2 sustained serious arm and leg injuries. Both employees were admitted into the hospital for treatment of the fractures they sustained in the fall.
