Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 127636.015Event: 07/08/2020Employee Is Killed In Fall From Flat Roof
At 3:30 p.m. on July 8, 2020, Employee #1 and a coworker, employed by a construction company, were removing steel roof panels from the flat roof of a three-story manufacturing building in preparation for installing a new roof. The roof panels measured approximately 1.5 feet wide by 25 feet long. The removal process entailed walking on an aluminum scaffold pick rather than the unsuitable work surface of the roof panels. The two employees were required to use a fall protection system of self-retracting lifelines attached to metal roof swivel anchors, Part Number 390RSA-01, with shock-absorbing lanyards and harnesses, which were provided by the employer. However, when the employees returned to the roof after a lunch break, they did not attach their harnesses to the lifelines. As they lifted a roof panel, one employee at each end of the panel, a gust of wind blew the steel panel onto the employees' legs. Employee #1 lost his balance and fell from the scaffold pick, a total fall height of 35 feet. Employee #1 sustained multiple fractures and blunt force trauma and was killed by the fall.
