TWO EMPLOYEES WERE CLEANING OUT MUSHROOM BEDS AND PLACING COMPOST ONTO A LINE OF BELT CONVEYORS. THERE WERE 4 CONVEYORS AT 20 FEET IN LENGTH, EACH RUN BY AN ELECTRIC MOTOR. THE USE OF CORD SETS ENABLED THE CONVEYORS TO BE USED IN A LINE. THE MOTOR AND THE CASE WERE BONDED TO THE CONTINUOUS GROUND WITHIN THE ELECTRIC CORD. HOWEVER, WHILE LYING ACROSS THE ALUMINUM FRAME OF A CONVEYOR, ONE OF THE EMPLOYEES INCORRECTLY CONNECTED AN ATTACHMENT PLUG TO A CORD CONNECTOR. THIS ENERGIZED THE METAL FRAMES OF THE CONVEYORS. BECAUSE THIS EMPLOYEE WAS LYING ACROSS THE FRAME, HE WAS ELECTROCUTED. THE OTHER EMPLOYEE WAS ALSO INJURED.
