Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 95792.015Event: 05/22/2017Employee Falls From Ledge And Is Killed
At 8:00 a.m. on May 22, 2017, an employee was performing scheduled maintenance of welding shims on the Pecor rail system of a Basic Oxygen Process at a Steel Mill. The employee was using fall protection and went past a guard rail to access the area in which he needed to work. When the employee went into the area, he stepped onto a ledge that was filled with debris. The employee slipped and fell off the ledge. The employee's fall protection did not stop the employee's fall. He fell sixteen feet striking a vertical scaffolding post before stopping on top of the scaffolding deck. The employee's chest hit the vertical scaffolding post, and he was killed.
