The Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) recently posted on its L&I Blog a blog titled "I survived," a cautionary tale about how fall protection saved a construction work from a 30' plunge. In early May, Apollo, Inc. employee Tanner Kane was using a bar to pop forms off the top of a retaining wall. Suddenly, he was catapulted over a 30' retaining wall. According to his work partner, Carrie Johnson, "It was crazy; one minute he was there, and in a blink of an eye he was gone." Because Tanner was using a fall protection system and was tied off to the horizontal lifeline installed for the job, he survived the potential 30' fall with no significant injuries. Tanner's coworkers activated the rescue plan and Tanner was able to self-rescue with help from Carrie.
