Summary Nr: 101947.015Event: 11/30/2017Employee Dies From Electrical Shock
At 10:52 a.m. on November 30, 2017, Employee #1 was working on an energized female electrical plug at the "load out" line near door 1N of Building A, which conveys potatoes from the storage bin into trucks for transport to the processing plant. The employee had its female plug end partially disassembled, exposing the terminals, near an energized 480 volt electrical cord that was the outgoing power for the Spudnik eliminator. Employee #1 was found unresponsive, but was revived onsite by EMS and transported to a nearby hospital, where he died later that day.
