Summary Nr: 202532925Event: 04/14/2014Roofer Falls From Roof And Fractures Leg
At 12:15 p.m. on April 14, 2014, Employee #1, a full-time roofer employed by Accurate Roofing Solutions, was installing a new layer of shingles onto the pitched roof of a one-story single family residence. At the time he was working alone. Employee #1, intending to descend the roof and go on his lunch break, moved toward the ladder positioned on the edge of the roof. Employee #1's anchor point gave way and detached from the roof's center beam. Employee #1 slipped and fell onto the roof's pitched surface, rolled off the roof's edge, and fell to the concrete surface below, a fall height of 10 feet. Emergency services were called, and Employee #1 was transported to the hospital, where he was admitted and treated for a fracture of the right leg. This event was reported to Cal/OSHA at 10:25 a.m. on April 15, 2014, and Cal/OSHA subsequently investigated.
