Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201066784Event: 10/25/2003Fall From Platform Into Elevator Shaft
At approximately 10:30 a.m. on October 25, 2003, Employee #1 fell from a portable, elevated work platform into an elevator shaft and was killed. Employee #1 was installing ceiling drywall between two elevator shafts in a lobby area when he lost his balance and fell over the guardrail that was blocking the open elevator shafts. Employee #1 fell approximately 46 feet to the bottom of the elevator shaft/pit. The platform Employee #1 was working from, which allowed him to reach the ceiling was elevated to a height which rendered the 42-inch guardrail ineffective in preventing a fall. Employee #1 had approximately one week of experience at the time of the accident.
