Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200920270Event: 05/24/2000Employee Killed In Fall Through Roof Opening
At approximately 4:30 p.m. on May 24, 2000, Employee #1 was helping two coworkers install metal decking on a 42 ft high roof. The workers were using a metal cable, which had been attached to points on the roof, to secure their lanyards. Before placing decking over a 25 ft long by 6 ft wide opening in the roof, the foreman instructed one of the workers to remove the cable because it was lying over the opening, creating an obstruction. While placing the first piece of decking over the opening, Employee #1 accidentally stepped into it and fell approximately 42 ft to the ground. He was killed.
