Employees are likely to bestruck by falling brick from collapse of the East wall of the building or by steel and other building components from failure of the vertical side wall support at the North East corner of the North wall of the building. The East Wall is badly damaged as a result of vehicle and clam shell bucket impact. The North East corner side wall support is heavily rusted and deteriorated. A feasible method of abatement for these hazards includes the following: 1) Remove the loose brick in the East wall and shore the remaining wall structure as a temporary; 2) Replace the East wall; 3) Repair the deteriorated verticle sidewall support of the North East corner of the North wall.
