As would be the case anywhere else in the country, Colorado companies are required to provide their employees with a safe work environment. This includes providing safety equipment and training on how to use it properly. Otherwise, an employer could be seriously or fatally injured at work.
Recently, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration began an investigation into the death of an out-of-state man who fell several feet while working. The victim was installing insulation on some equipment from a height of approximately 20 feet. It appears that he was wearing the required safety harness, but it has not yet been determined whether the victim was wearing it properly.
