At 1:05 p.m. on January 10, 2018, an employee and coworkers were erecting a tubu lar welded frame scaffold in front of a commercial building in order to repair t he top four feet of brick at the front of the building. The scaffold was erected four tiers high, near an energized, uninsulated power line (13.2 kV phase to ph ase). The minimum required clearance distance of 10 feet was not maintained. As the construction of the scaffold was almost complete with only the last few pie ces of guardrail to be installed, the employee inadvertently contacted the power line with a 7-foot long piece of metal scaffolding. The employee was electrocu ted as a result.
