Abstract
A spray painter died after falling 30 feet from the roof of a condominium. The victim apparently walked sideways off the edge of the roof while spray painting. He struck an arbor roof constructed of 2" by 10" wooden beams prior to landing on a concrete walkway. The victim was pronounced dead 5 hours later at a local hospital. The Colorado Department of Health investigator concluded that, in order to prevent future similar occurrences, employers should: 1. Implement 29 CFR 1926.104, which requires the use of safety belts, lifelines, and lanyards when working from elevations. 2. Consider and address worker safety in the planning phase of projects. 3. Develop, implement, and enforce a comprehensive safety program that includes, but is not limited to, training in fall hazard recognition and the use of fall protection devices.
