Abstract
A 54 year-old male pressman fell approximately 41 inches from a printing press. He fell face first to a concrete floor and was taken to a hospital where he died later in the day from a heart attack. The Nebraska Department of Labor (NDOL) investigator concluded that to prevent future similar occurrences, employers and employees should: 1. Ensure workers are familiar with the difference in equipment that is similar, but not identical, before working on other than their normal equipment. 2. Ensure fixed ladders are equipped with proper side rails, in accordance with 29CFR 1910.27 (b) (2). 3. Consider requiring the use of non-skid soled shoes when work requires climbing on ladders/equipment.
