Abstract
On July 9, 1993, a 32 year old, male metal building assembler was fatally injured when he fell 33 feet off a roof top at a Massachusetts construction site. The victim was apparently preparing to place metal decking on the building's structural steel roof when he fell to the ground. Police and emergency medical services immediately responded and the victim was prepared for transport to the regional hospital. He died in the hospital nine days later. To prevent similar future occurrences, the MA FACE Program Field Investigator recommends that employers: 1. Provide adequate fall protection during metal decking operations. 2. Design, develop and implement a comprehensive safety training program that includes, but is not limited to fall protection.
