Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 202549804Event: 12/20/2008Employee Falls And Fractures Both Hips
On December 20, 2008, Employee #1, a night shift custodian, was performing various cleaning duties throughout an amusement park. On that night, he was assigned to use a power washer to clean a raised platform of several hundred square feet used by clients for exiting a ride known as Screamin. Employee #1 had received safety training for this task and had performed it several times before. He began cleaning a section of the ground, and he turned his back to a small area approximately 30 ft that did not have railing to protect against falling. Employee #1 walked off the edge of the platform backwards, falling a distance of 6 ft upon the cement ground. He suffered fractures to both hips. At a medical center, he underwent surgery and was hospitalized for five days.
