Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200551174Event: 01/17/2000Electric Shock - Direct Contact With Energized Parts
A four-person crew was maintaining, repairing, and replacing pad-mounted transformers in a residential subdivision. There were no homes, but the transformers had been in place for many years anticipating housing construction. Someone using a bush hog to cut brush and weeds had damaged the transformers. The crew supervisor thought that the underground wiring supplying all the 7620 transformers was deenergized. The crew had successfully worked on four transformers without incident. As the employees were beginning work on the fifth transformer, one of the power line workers on the crew contacted an energized part and was electrocuted.
