Summary Nr: 116323.015Event: 05/06/2019Employee Working Near Power Line Is Electrocuted
At 11:15 a.m. on May 6, 2019, Employee #1, employed by a concrete company, was working at a road repair project. He was using a jointer with an extended handle to finish the paved concrete surface. The tool's handle had been lengthened with the addition of four extensions, each 5 feet 5 inches long. When Employee #1 raised the extended handle, it came into contact with the electro-magnetic field surrounding overhead electrical power lines. The handle conducted 1,400 volts of electricity down to Employee #1, who was electrocuted.
