Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 96764.015Event: 05/22/2017Employee Falls From Ladder And Later Dies
At 11:00 a.m. on May 22, 2017, an employee was removing a round metal sign from the outside of a twostory building. Other employees were painting curbs on the other side of the parking lot. The employee accessed the metal sign by erecting a 24 foot aluminum extension ladder, and leaned it against the side of the building just to the east of the building's double glass doors. He used a Milwaukee Sawzall reciprocating power saw to cut the bolts or rivets holding the sign onto the side of the building. During the cutting, the employee fell 16 feet to the concrete sidewalk where he'd spread a drop cloth. A witness sitting in his car waiting to pick up his wife noticed the employee was struggling on the ladder with the saw and the sign. As the sign broke free from the wall, the employee fell about 16 feet. He suffered multiple fractures and dislocations to both arms, fractured ribs, facial and cranial fractures, fractured vertebrae in his neck, and hematoma. The employee was hospitalized and underwent surgery; however, he died on July 1, 2017 from a pulmonary embolism received due his injuries and lack of mobility following release from the hospital.
