More construction workers die from falls than from any other on-the-job injury. Fatal falls and serious injuries may result from inadequate guarding and fall protection for work around skylights. This video explains the events that led to a roofing supervisor's death after he fell 30 feet through a warehouse roof skylight onto a floor. Photographs from the fatality investigation are supplemented with scenes recreated by co-workers who were there that day. Fall prevention recommendations are highlighted. Roofing and construction companies are encouraged to include this video as part of a comprehensive safety training program (English, 5 min 40 sec).

The video was produced by the California Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) program (http://www.cdph.ca.gov/programs/ohb-face) in the Occupational Health Branch of the California Department of Public Health.
