Abstract
A 68-year-old white male plant supervisor fell approximately six feet from a loading dock and died several days later. He (victim) was climbing down from the loading dock to help co-workers unload a truck. Co-workers heard a noise and when they turned to look they saw the victim lying on the ground. Paramedics were summoned to the scene. The CaFACE investigator concluded that, in order to prevent similar future occurrences, employers should: 1. Install stairwells in pathways that employees frequently use 2. Train employees to recognize and avoid hazards, and implement safe work policies including task specific procedures 3. Have employees trained in first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
