Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201040078Event: 09/13/1996Burn - Electrical Fault In Underground Power Line
Two employees were assigned to cap a natural gas line. One of them began digging a trench. When he encountered hard soil, he asked his coworker (a supervisor) for assistance. The supervisor told the first employee to use a jackhammer. As the employee was using the jackhammer, it penetrated an underground power line. The employee told the supervisor what happened. The supervisor investigated the problem and started moving debris away from the area. An electrical fault occurred in the 7000-volt power line, and the ensuing electric arc caused minor burns to the supervisor's eyes.
