Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 303808877Event: 12/07/2001Employee Burned When Changing Switchgear
On December 7, 2001, Employee #1 was changing a switchgear on a telephone pole. His coworker had not inspected the lines going into and out of the switchgear, but had left the tape covering the three lines. Employee #1 assumed that the lines coming out of the box were going into the box in the same way. However, they were not, the lines changed in the middle the box. As Employee #1 was removing the box, power was resorted to the lines and caused a cross-phase flash that burned him. He was transported to a medical center and hospitalized for the treatment of the burns received in the accident.
