Employee Burned When Hand Tool Contacts Energized Line

On January 9, 2003, Employee #1, who worked for a high voltage conductor and equipment contractor, and a coworker-line foreman were removing the "B" phase line side conductor termination from an underground residential distribution switch cabinet. Employee #1's hand tool contacted an energized, 7,200-volt phase-to-ground AC cable termination paddle, resulting in an electric arc and flash. He suffered second- and third-degree burns on his right hand, upper left arm, and left shoulder, for which he was hospitalized. The line foreman did not perform the proper tests to ensure the conductors were isolated from all sources of electricity.
