The I-beam was attached to a crawler crane with a cable during a procedure in which the beam was being used as a hammer. When the cable snapped, the beam fell but became tangled with some steel sheeting, pinning the construction worker's lower legs but preventing him from taking the full impact of the beam. Photo: FDNY Facebook FDNY Deputy Chief James DiDomenico said his crew had three issues to deal with when they arrived on the accident scene in Kew Gardens on Queens Boulevard at about 10:20 a.m. "The first issue was stabilizing the scene, because the hammer was leaning up against the steel sheeting and we were concerned about the hammer falling further and causing very serious injury," Didomenico said. The worker was pinned and injured, but still alert. "We stabilized the hammer using ropes, a griphoist and some struts. Once we had it stabilized, rescue paramedics administered medical care to the patient. He was conscious the entire time." DiDomenico said he decided that rather than lifting the 7-ton hammer, he chose to dig underneath it to free the worker because that was an easier, quicker and safer operation. The operation took less than 20 minutes. If the whole thing had come down on him it would have been a much worse outcome, Didomenico said.

The case began more than ten years ago when nursing assistants at five Pennsylvania nursing homes operated by Beverly Enterprises filed complaints with OSHA alleging that they had suffered back injuries from lifting and transferring patients. Beverly operates some 240 nursing homes nationwide. At the conclusion of a fifteen-month investigation that began in 1991, OSHA issued citations against Beverly for ergonomics violations under the "general duty" clause of the Occupational Safety and Health Act. That clause, which OSHA regulations is Section 5(1)(a) of the Act, states simply that an employer must provide employees with a workplace "free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm. 29 U.S.C. 654(a)(1). The "general duty" clause is the Act's catch-all provision that provides OSHA with an enforcement option even in the absence of a specific standard. In a sense, it may pose more of a compliance challenge than the proposed ergonomics standard because it provides none of the specifics of a formal standard and permits the Agency to craft a case-specific standard. Congress intended that that the Act would be enforced largely through specific standards that would tell employers what they must do to achieve a safe and healthful workplace. The "general duty" clause was arguably intended to fill gaps that may occur, but to cover only hazardous conditions that are serious and obvious.
