Summary Nr: 525741Event: 06/05/1992Burn - Electrical Fault In Circuit
A MAINTENANCE WORKER WAS TROUBLESHOOTING A 2400-VOLT CIRCUIT FOR A TEST PUMP. HE WAS USING A BECKMAN MULTIMETER (MODEL NO. 350, SERIAL NO. 10501011). THE INSTRUMENT WAS IN THE 1000-VOLT AC TEST RANGE AND WAS BEING USED ON AN ENERGIZED CIRCUIT. WHEN THE EMPLOYEE PLACED THE INSTRUMENT PROBES ONTO THE FUSES (EITHER PHASE-TO-PHASE OR PHASE-TO-GROUND), THE CURRENT VAPORIZED THE PROBES. THIS CREATED AN ELECTRICAL FAULT, AND THE ENSUING ELECTRIC ARC SEVERELY BURNED THE EMPLOYEE. HE DIED OF HIS INJURIES SEVERAL WEEKS AFTER THE ACCIDENT.
