Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 202003844Event: 06/09/2000Employee Killed In Fall Through Roof Opening
On June 9, 2000, Employee #1, a journeyman iron worker, a coworker, and the job foreman were replacing metal roof deck sheets on a low-pitched roof. The deck sheets had been removed five days earlier to allow access to a bridge crane so that repairs could be made to the drum. For some reason, Employee #1 stepped onto the end of a deck sheet that was unsupported and had not yet been secured. Both he and the metal sheet fell 130 ft through the roof opening to the ground. Employee #1 was killed. Employee #1 and the two coworkers were apparently wearing full body harnesses and 6 ft shock-absorbing lanyards at the time of the accident, but none of the workers had their lanyards connected to an anchor point.
