Abstract
On May 17, 1993, a 64 year-old male laborer fell 12 feet from a second floor window of a house undergoing renovations and landed on a concrete porch. He died at a hospital the next day. NJDOH FACE investigators concluded that, in order to prevent similar incidents in the future, the following safety guidelines should be followed: 1. Employers must assess each job for potential hazards and train employees in methods of dealing with them. 2. Any unprotected wall opening should be guarded. 3. Company owners should make themselves aware of sources of information about health and safety issues.
