Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 201351558
Event: 12/18/2001
Employee Electrocuted When Pump Truck Boom Contacts Power Li

On December 18, 2001, Employee #1 and a coworker were pouring the footings for a building. They were using a 42-meter Schwing Pump truck that was parked near one of the footing. The pump truck driver was using a remote control to operate the boom, while Employee #1 was holding and directing the hose connected to the boom. The footing on one side of the site was near a 29 ft 9 in. high overhead power line; if they had been on an equal plane, the power line wosld have been 18 in. away from the footing. As the two employees poured the concrete footings, they eventually moved near the power lines. The boom of the pump truck contacted the 7,200-volt power line, energizing the boom and the hose. Employee #1 was electrocuted. A hazard assessment was not done prior to the pour to determine the existence of electrical hazards such as power lines.
