Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 86840.015Event: 07/12/2016Employee In Manhole Is Asphyxiated By Sewer Gas
At 11:45 a.m. on July 12, 2016, an employee was working for a firm that engaged in water and sewer line and related structures construction. He and some coworkers were going to be working in an active sewer line. He was walking toward the work area. There was a manhole that provided access to the active sewer line. The manhole had been opened to vent out the area in which the workers were going to be working. Apparently the employee was overcome by fumes and fell from a ladder into the manhole. The preliminary determination was that he was asphyxiated.
