Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 202557161Event: 01/30/2014Painter Fractures Leg In Fall From Ladder
On January 30, 2014, Employee #1, a journeyman painter employed by General Coating Corp., was painting the interior of a residential structure. He was working from the third rung of a 6-foot ladder positioned adjacent to the landing rail wall and using an extension pole to paint the ceiling. The ladder shifted, causing Employee #1 to lose his balance and fall over the rail and down to the concrete walkway below, a fall height of 30 feet. Emergency services were called, and the Orange County Fire Authority responded. Employee #1 was transported to Mission Hospital, where he was admitted and treated for a right leg fracture. This event was reported to Cal/OSHA by both the Orange County Fire Authority and the employer on January 30, 2014. The subsequent investigation determined that the employer was engaged in the coating and waterproofing business, and Employee #1 was a regular, full-time employee.
