Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 201280740
Event: 03/06/2000
Electric Shock - Possible Ground Fault

An employee was working from an aerial lift, repairing and patching ceiling insulation material. He was using an electric screw gun connected to extension cord sets to reattach and secure metal lath to the ceiling where the insulation had come loose. He had raised the aerial lift platform almost to the top of the ceiling. The employee was found slumped over the controls in the platform of the aerial lift. Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation was administered to no avail. The injured employee was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. The medical examiner preliminarily ruled that the cause of death was electrocution. The employee's body tested negative for alcohol.
