On Friday, Feb. 17, a contractor slipped and fell while descending from a scaffold system on the Technology and Engineering Development Facility, or TEDF, construction site. The contractor was taken to the Riverside Hospital Emergency Department where he was diagnosed with a bruised back and back strain.
The mishap, which involved a Hydromobile Scaffold, is being investigated. But initial results indicate that workers need to be reminded to stay focused on their current task and need to maintain awareness of environmental changes that may affect their working conditions. This may require them to adjust their work task accordingly.
