This case involves a man who was injured working in the warehouse of a major producer of commercial baking ingredients. At the time of the incident in question, the plaintiff was employed as a subcontractor at the warehouse facility, and was tasked with the installation of new lights on the warehouse ceiling. In order to access the roof, the plaintiff’s firm had erected scaffolding approximation 20 feet high off of the warehouse floor.
