Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 200781441
Event: 06/14/2000
Electric Shock - Direct Contact With Energized Parts

A four-employee crew was assigned to upgrade the underground distribution line running from a residential meter base to a pad-mounted transformer. The crew foreman was working on the 240/120-volt transformer secondary. Two helpers on the crew were assisting him. As the foreman was making a connection to an energized terminal, he slipped and fell onto energized parts of the transformer. He became wedged between the transformer and the cable-television pedestal and could not break free of the energized parts. He was electrocuted.
