A coroner’s jury probing the death of an Ontario construction worker in 2006 has made a series of recommendations meant to enhance fall protection.

Michael Suto, 22, was working on a roof at a job site in Innisfil, Ontario when he fell, receiving fatal injuries. Although Suto was trained and certified in fall protection, notes a summary from coroner Maarthen Reinders, he appears to have left his safety belt in a nearby garage. As such, he was not attached to a safety rope at the time of the fall.
