Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 170866180Event: 02/17/1999Employee Injures Head In Fall From Ladder
Employee #1, a painter, was asked to help a short-handed street maintenance crew to install STOP signs on a street. He was working with a regular crew member, who was on a metal ladder extending the height of the street sign posts with a manual pipe threading tool. After seeing two signs threaded, Employee #1 took a turn with the threader. He had made several turns when the tool separated and his momentum threw him from the ladder. He landed on his head in the street, and suffered severe head injuries and internal bleeding, for which he was hospitalized for ten days. The coworker had gone to the truck and was not holding the ladder when Employee #1 fell.
