Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200460590Event: 08/10/1999Three Employees Injured In Fall With Steel Decking
Employees #1 through #3, all iron workers, were installing metal decking on a 14 ft by 16 ft drop slab area on the first floor of a steel structure under construction. Apparently, the support beam rolled, causing the decking on which they were standing to slide off it and drop 13 ft to the ground. Employees #1 and #2 suffered back fractures and were hospitalized; Employee #3 suffered multiple contusions, for which he was treated and released. Apparently, the support beam had only one loose bolt at each connection, instead of two wrench-tightened bolts at each connection, as required by OSHA standards.
