Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 14554919Event: 10/18/1990Electric Shock - Ground Fault In Electrical Box
Two plumbers employed by a plumbing contractor were working at a single-family dwelling. They were unclogging a kitchen waste line. One of the employees was in the crawlspace beneath the house, and the other employee was under the kitchen sink. The employee in the crawlspace was running a snake up the waste line when he apparently contacted an electrical junction box. A bare 240-volt splice was contacting the metal box, which apparently was not grounded. This ground fault energized the box, and the employee was electrocuted.
