Abstract
A 46 year-old male roofer died as a result of injuries sustained from a 20 foot fall while installing shingles on a new home. He was not wearing any fall protection. The Nebraska Department of Labor investigator concluded that to prevent future similar occurrences, employers and employees should: 1. Ensure that appropriate fall protection is available and used when workers may be exposed to a fall hazard. 2. Monitor employees and co-workers for impaired behavior. 3. Consider installing fall protection attach points into a home during construction.
