Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 170746077 Event: 03/28/1995Employee'S Foot Injured In 60 Ft Fall From Bosun Chair
Employee #1 was cleaning windows from a boatswain's chair suspended by a two part line hooked into a Sky Genie. The lifeline was attached to a common anchorage, which in this case was a perimeter cable. The quarter inch cable was spliced in a poor manner that allowed the ends to pull out under load and cause a failure in the anchorage. Employee #1 fell approximately five stories (60 ft) and struck his right foot on a ledge, severely injuring it. He was transported to a nearby medical center and was treated and released.
