Employee'S Hands Burned By Electric Arc

On September 24, 2003, Employee #1 and a coworker were switching generators in a building. The building lights worked but the rotation of the generator's motors was backward. Employee #1 decided to correct the rotation by changing two phases. He was trying to connect the phases when an electric arc occurred and he suffered second- and third-degree burns on his hands. Employee #1 was taken to Lancaster Community Hospital and then transferred to Sherman Oaks Burn Center, where he was hospitalized for two weeks.
