Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200356962Event: 04/17/2008Employee Is Killed In Fall From Cell Phone Tower
On April 17, 2008, Employee #1 fell from an 86 foot high monopole cell phone tower while installing new amplifiers. The employer had a policy of 100 foot tie-off, and Employee #1 was known for adhering to that policy. However, Employee #1 was not practicing 100 foot tie-off at the time of the accident. Employee #1 was wearing a full body harness and had a front lanyard (to keep him near the work site) as well as two lanyards attached to the rear D ring (as safety backups). Employee #1 fell to a sloped portion of an ice bridge, striking the bridge and falling onto a chain link fence, and then falling to the ground. Employee #1 was pronounced dead at the site.
