A worker at Lyondell Basell was killed after suffering a fall during the course of his work. A root cause analysis will be used to determine why the fall occurred and what can be done to prevent future falls and deaths. Industrial workers who are more than 6 feet above the ground are required by OSHA and their employer to wear fall protection. Even though a worker wears fall protection, these accidents are often contributed to the employer or a third party due to faulty procedures, failure to comply with OSHA regulations or faulty platforms and scaffolds from which workers are required to perform their duties.
