Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201130200Event: 02/22/2014Employee Falls From Ladder And Injures Leg
At approximately 8:45 a.m. on February 22, 2014, Employee #1 was working for sub-contractor that would apply stucco finishes to new architectural elements on building facades. He worked with a foreman and a crew of five coworkers. The employees were applying stucco on the building facade of a single-story strip mall. While ascending a portable extension ladder, Employee #1 carried a 5-gallon bucket of stucco material on his right shoulder to a coworker, a plasterer, who was on the second-level of a metal frame scaffold. The weight of 5-gallons of stucco was over 55 pound. Employee#1 used his left hand to hold onto the ladder rail. He was nearing the point on the second-level platform where he was planning to dump the bucket contents. Employee #1 stepped up a rung with his right foot. His left foot then slipped off the ladder rung. He released the bucket but still lost his balance and fell, fracturing and injuring his leg. Employee #1 was transported to a medical center, where he underwent surgical procedures, which included two sets of plates and screws inserted into his leg below the knee to stabilize the fractured leg and received additional medical care and was then hospitalized for two days.
