Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 202556825Event: 08/23/2013Worker Sustains Multiple Fractures In Fall From Ladder
On August 23, 2013, Employee #1, an Electrician employed by an electrical contractor, was installing lighting fixtures inside a three-story house under construction. He was in the process of wiring a ceiling light on top of a spiral stairwell. The light fixture was 9 feet above the third floor landing and approximately 42 feet above the bottom of the stairwell. Employee #1 was working from a 6-foot A-frame ladder that he had set up on the third floor next to the staircase railing. While standing on the ladder, he had to reach out 3.5 feet from the staircase railing to access the ceiling light fixture. He lost his balance. Employee #1 fell approximately 36 feet to the bottom floor. Emergency services were called. Employee #1 was transported to the hospital, where he was admitted and treated for body trauma including multiple fractures. He required hospitalization for three weeks. The employer reported this incident to Cal/OSHA on August 23, 2013. The subsequent investigation determined that Employee #1 was regularly employed by the employer and was not a contract employee.
