Clyde W. Dolin, 59 year old mechanic, was using a 14' fiberglass ladder on the 3rd floor of the preparation plant while attempting to prepare a 12" hoist beam to be cut and removed. The ladder became unstable, slid across the 1-beam and caused the victim to fall across the adjacent 42" handrail, and down through the hoist well, to a concrete floor located 39 feet below.
