Summary Nr: 201071438Event: 09/17/2007Employee Injured In Fall When Vertical Column Shifts
At approximately 2:30 p.m. on September 17, 2007, Employee #1, a steel worker with International Iron Products, was helping to erect vertical columns at a building site. Employee #1 was working alongside a coworker and had finished with two of the four anchor bolts used to secure a vertical column to the concrete slab. Before the remaining two anchor bolts could be completed, he climbed the pole to release the hoisting noose. Employee #1 was on his way down the column when it tilted and he was thrown off, landing on the concrete slab. He sustained fractures in both arms and was transported to the hospital, where he underwent surgery to place a pin in his left forearm.
