Case Study: A 33-year-old male hotel custodian died from injuries sustained after falling down a flight of stairs. The man was an experienced custodian and had been working for the hotel for 10 years. On the night of the incident, he was asked to deliver a roll-away bed to a guest staying on the second floor. He retrieved the bed from a first-floor storage room and carried the bed up the stairs. At some point during his ascent, he lost his balance and fell down the stairway. He was found lying on his back at the bottom of the stairway; the roll-away bed had landed on his chest. He was transported to a hospital shortly after the incident, where he was pronounced dead.

Key Takeaway: You should always use handrails when taking the stairs and take care not to ascend or descend carrying a load that can obstruct your view or put you off balance. More than one employee should have been involved in moving a large, bulky object like a roll-away bed.

Click to Learn More How often is retraining or recertification required?

OSHA has not specified any time frame for required retraining or recertification for Slips, Trips & Falls Walking Working Surfaces General Industry. Since there is no OSHA standard dealing with this specific hazard the OSH Act general duty clause, section 5(a)(1), 29 U.S.C. 654(b)(1) defines the standard which provides that:

(a) Each employer -

(1) shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.

A recognized hazard is a danger recognized by the employer's industry or industry in general, by the employer, or by common sense. The general duty clause does not apply if there is an OSHA standard dealing with the hazard, unless the employer knows that the standard does not adequately address the hazard.
