This case takes place in Florida and involves a repair worker who died from an elevator shaft accident while performing maintenance duties for the elevators of a large office building. The man, along with a handful of other individuals, was performing routine maintenance of equipment located within the elevator shaft. However, the plaintiff and his coworkers had failed to do a lockout-tagout, which would have prevented the elevator from turning on while the men were working in the shaft. At some point, the elevator was activated and the elevator came down on the worker, crushing him to death. It is alleged that the lack of lockout-tagout protocols put the men working within the elevator shaft in significant danger, and that the accident could have been avoided if the company had proper safety procedures in place.
