A 60-year-old ironworker died when he fell 30 feet through a skylight roof opening. The victim had 39 years of experience as an ironworker. He had previously worked for his employer, a poured concrete foundation and structure contractor, as a union referral. The job site was a new construction precast concrete building for storage of water tanks. The victim was not using his fall protection system, though there were adequate fall protection anchors and lanyards available. The previous day a coworker had seen the victim not using fall protection on two occasions and told him that he needed to tie-off.
