Information obtained from initial interviews indicated the employee was standing on the landing at the top of the stairs. A Building Electrician who was in the room at the time of the accident, stated that he heard a noise and found the injured employee face down at the bottom of the steps. The individual died on June 24, 2013.
The Board identified the Root Cause of this accident to be that an effective fitness for duty requirement and process does not exist at DOE Headquarters for Federal employees returning to work from a non-work related injury or illness.
