Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201773520Event: 05/20/2010Employee Is Killed From Falling Off A Spheroid Tower
At 10:30 am, on May 20, 2010, Employee #1 and three other employees were assembling the 8th level of a one million gallon Spheroid water tower. The employees were approximately 95 ft. above ground level, working from a scaffold on the interior of the Spheroid's shaft. The crew of employees were fitting the seam on the newly added section. With the new section secured, Employee #1 climbed a fixed ladder to access additional tools needed to complete the job. In order to reach the tools, Employee #1 had to climb approximately 8 ft. up the fixed ladder, through a manhole hatch, and onto the "Top Platform". The three other crew members stated that Employee #1 opened the hatch and began to climb through it. Before Employee #1 could reach the "Top Platform" he lost his footing and fell. Employee #1 fell past the scaffolding and landed on the "Condensation Platform" 60 to 67 ft. below. Employee #1 was wearing a personal fall arrest system, but he was not tied off. Employee #1 died from the fall and fractures.
