At 5:21 p.m. fire crews responded to Facebooks new building 21 after part of the building collapsed causing two workers to fall, according to Menlo Park Fire Protection District officials. The victims were assembling steel framing about 40 feet above ground when a steel beam they were standing on dropped about 20 feet, according to workers who witnessed the incident. The beam caught on a lower floor assembly and catapulted the two men toward the ground. Their safety harnesses and rigging broke and stopped their descent before hitting the ground below, fire officials said. According to fire officials, one victim is in his late 20s and the other is in his early 30s. Both men were conscious after the fall and complained of significant pain to their lower extremities, as well as puncture wounds. Both men were treated at the scene, then transported to Stanford Hospital and Trauma Center. In a statement, Menlo Park fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman said, Fortunately, the iron workers were wearing their safety harnesses and rigging, which probably helped save their lives along with, as we understand it, the fact that the beam they were attached to caught on a lower floor assembly, miraculously insuring their survival. A number of steel upright and cross beams were damaged in the collapse, according to fire officials. The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health will be conducting an investigation of the collapse.

Finally, the Tirfor has a much more effective (and safer) mechanism for smoothly *lowering* a heavy load. Most (ratcheted) come-alongs are very poor at this. George Dyson In Europe these tools are known as Tirfor Hand Winches. In the US they are branded Griphoists. They are also sometimes sold as Scaffold Hoists. This diversity indicated their astounding versatility for moving heavy things by hand. They do the work of motorized winches haul logs, or move stuck tractors, raise towers, and so on but with the deftness of a human hand. Because there is no ratchet or coil, a Griphoist permits very small adjustments, unlike either come-alongs or winches. The patented double grip mechanism of the Griphoist/Tirfor is considered so reliable that some versions of the unit are rated by the UL to be suitable for hoisting humans for instance in hoisting window-washers scaffolding.
