Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 104390.015Event: 04/04/2018Employee Contact Energized Power Line And Is Electrocuted
At 12:15 a.m. on April 4, 2018, Employee #1 responded to a power outage that occurred as a result of a tree falling on a power line. Employee #1 initially used a bucket truck to reach where the tree struck the line; however, the terrain was too muddy. He then used a safety harness to climb the utility pole, assuming the line was grounded. While ascending the utility pole, Employee #1 contacted the energized power line and was electrocuted. A nearby coworker, who heard a loud sound, looked back and saw Employee #1 hanging from the utility pole. The coworker immediately contacted emergency services.
