Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200260693Event: 08/04/1999Electric Shock - Direct Contact With Energized Parts
A maintenance worker and a helper were replacing a 120-volt, single-phase, dual-capacitor electric motor that had been smoking. The maintenance worker deenergized the circuit and disconnected the wiring to the motor. However, he did not discharge the capacitors or cap the conductors. When the helper began to unbolt the motor from its mounts, he contacted the motor conductors. The capacitors, which combined could store a charge of up to 485 volts, discharged into the helper. The employee was electrocuted.
