Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 128418.015Event: 08/07/2020Independent Contractor Is Killed When Struck By Falling Beam
At 9:00 am on August 7, 2020, an independent contractor and employees of a civil engineering company, were working on a construction project at the site of a water purification plant. They were working inside of a 30-foot excavation and using a sleeve to join sections of a 108-inch diameter pipe they were installing. The independent contractor, who was hired periodically by the company for welding, had just finished welding a high beam onto the end of a pipe section so that an excavator could maneuver the pipe into the sleeve. As the independent contractor and an employee was standing near the high beam, the weld on the beam broke. The beam fell, striking the independent contractor. The independent contractor was killed.
