Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201205093Event: 08/09/2013Employee Fall From Aerial Lift, Later Dies
On August 9, 2013, an employee and a coworker were dispatched to make a repair on the top of a wooden light pole with communication equipment installed on the top of the pole. The workers using a Genie 65S aerial lift accessed their work area to make the repair. The repair was made and the employee and the coworker lowered the lift to the ground. The employee re-entered the aerial lift by himself to go back up to the work area to take photographs of their completed work. Another coworker working on the ground was conducting an electrical test on the repair that was completed. The employee raised the aerial lift into the air with the boom completely collapsed and the lift tipped over ejecting the employee onto the ground. The emergency medical services were called, and the employee was transported to the Peacehealth and Riverbend in Springfield, Oregon. It was determined that the employee had no brain activity and was transported to the Oregon Health Science University in Portland, Oregon for a second opinion. He was put on life support at the Peacehealth and was disconnected from it at the Oregon Health Science University. The employee passed away at 12:45 p.m. on August 23, 2013.
