Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 202479499Event: 11/14/2013Electrical Worker Is Injured In 12 Ft Fall From A Ladder
At approximately 9:14 a.m. on November 14, 2013, Employee #1, a 49-year-old male, electrician, with S & Sons Electrical Contractors Corp, was servicing fluorescent light fixtures in the warehouse by replacing light bulbs and ballasts. Employee #1 used insulated pliers and a 12-ft, non- conductive, fiberglass ladder manufactured by Werner (model number was NXT A12) with a load capacity of 300 pounds. The light fixtures were located approximately (12 ft and 10 in.) from the floor. Employee #1 removed a light bulb and cut wires while he was standing on the ladder. Employee #1 grabbed the top of a light fixture with his left hand and was trying to remove a bolt with pliers, when he felt an electric shock. This caused Employee #1 to fall from the ladder and he landed on the concrete floor below. Employee #1 sustained hip fracture and scalp laceration in the event. A primary root cause to this incident was due to electrical equipment not being de-energized before servicing light fixtures. S & Sons Electrical Contractors Corp was an electrical contractor and Employee #1 had been employed by S & Sons Electrical Contractors as an electrician, since August 2010.
