Tight Quarters Causes Problem

The worker was in the process of installing ceiling wire.  He was using a "Hilti Gun" with a 12 foot extension pole to shoot into the concrete deck above.  After installing a wire in a corner section of the room, he lowered his arm and came into contact with electrical wire mold that was mounted on the wall.  This caused injury to his elbow.
