Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201353208 Event: 08/22/2006Employee Is Killed In Fall From Billboard Catwalk
On August 22, 2006, Employee #1 and a coworker were working from a catwalk to dismantle an aluminum tri-wave sign from a billboard. Both Employee #1 and his coworker were wearing personal fall protection harnesses and lanyards. There was a cable installed near the catwalk on which they were standing for their lanyards to attach. However, Employee #1 did not attach his lanyard to the cable. After removing a number of aluminum pieces from the sign, Employee #1 and his coworker bundled them together so that they could be lowered to the ground with a rope. As they lowered the bundle of aluminum to the ground, Employee #1 slipped and fell about 35 feet to a paved parking lot. He landed head first and was killed.
