Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 14493985Event: 03/08/1988Electric Shock - Contact With Overhead Line Thru Guy
A power line worker and a ground worker were sent to install a new anchor and guy on a utility pole. The employees were instructed to deenergize the line before beginning work. However, they did not do so. They installed the anchor, and the line worker got into an insulated aerial lift with the new down guy line dangling from the bucket to ground. The line worker ascended to the work area and picked up the guy. The guy contacted the outer phase conductor of the 7200-volt-to-ground power line, electrocuting the power line worker. (The ground worker heard the arcing and used the lower controls to bring the dead employee down.)
