Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 96008.015Event: 05/30/2017Employee Falls From Elevation And Is Killed
At 12:30 p.m. on May 30, 2017, an employee was attempting to pull a steel mat back to the form so it could be tied into place. He had double wrapped the tie wire around the steel, and was using a 2 by 4 for leverage. He was tied off with one of his lanyards and his positioning hook. Both items were attached to the same location on the vertical bar beneath the first horizontal bar. The 2 by 4 snapped causing the employee to lose balance and fall backwards. The force from the board breaking and the employee falling backwards pulled upwards on the attachment point breaking the wires which were tied around the rebar. This forced the horizontal bar upward allowing the positioning hook and lanyard to slip off the vertical and horizontal steel rebar. The employee fell approximately 21 feet and was killed from head and internal injuries.
