Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201113594Event: 02/13/2002Employee Injured From Electric Shock And Fall From Ladder
On February 13, 2002, Employee #1, age 19, and coworkers were performing "termination and bonding" on conduit as part of wiring four electrical panel boxes for the "J-Pad" building on the Pepperdine University Campus. According to Employee #1, the Project Superintendent ordered him to perform this task while the panels were energized. The Superintendent removed the top panel so Employee #1 could access the conduit and the wire coming down. Employee #1 had to expose bare copper wire at end of grounding wire to screw it into the bonding clamp. The wire was apparently too long because it contacted the 480-volt energized busbar. Employee #1 was standing on a fiberglass ladder when this happened and he received an electric shock that caused him to fall off the ladder. Employee #1 suffered second- and third-degree burns, for which he was hospitalized.
