Excerpt from the government of Ontario’s ‘Newsroom’
Two workers employed by Farm Boy Company Inc. were dismantling a walk-in cooler at a warehouse facility in the Ottawa area. One of the workers used a scissor lift elevated work platform to step on the roof of the cooler to unscrew metal plates attached to the roof panels. The roof collapsed, causing the worker, who was not wearing fall protection, to fall over 10 feet to the concrete floor below. The worker sustained injuries as a result. The accident happened on June 01, 2021.
