The Washington State Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (WA FACE) Program tells the story of a worker who fell to his death on the job. Falls in construction are all too common, but for one carpet installer, a fall hazard may have been the last thing he expected in his industry. By telling his story and providing prevention recommendations, this 5-minute video cautions workers in construction to consider the hazards at each new job and at the beginning of each day, particularly the unexpected hazards.

This video was produced by the Washington State Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (WA FACE) Program, whose goal is the prevention of work-related fatal injuries.
