Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 96293.015Event: 06/09/2017Employee Falls From Roof And Is Killed
At 12:00 p.m. on June 9, 2017, an employee was working approximately 33 feet in the air on a metal roof without the use of fall protection. After working for approximately three hours, the employer removed about 20 sheets of metal material and two perlings. Perlings are horizontally placed steel beam structures to attach the sheet metal to the roof structure. As theemployee was on the roof in a bent over position with his arm cradling the last horizontal steel perling that was being removed by a coworker, perling broke away from the steel structure. The perling fell, talking the employee with it and striking the gin floor below. The county sheriff's office responded to the scene and CPR was initiated. However, the employee could not be saved and was pronounced dead at approximately 12:20 pm.
