Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 955963Event: 08/02/2001Electric Shock - Induced Current In Overhead Line
Three employees were working from an aerial lift on a 21-meter-tall steel electric transmission tower. The employees were unable to extend the aerial lift bucket to the area where a grounding jumper was to be disconnected. To access the jumper, one of the employees decided to climb onto the tower. He transferred onto a crossmember on the deenergized side of the tower. His left foot slipped from the crossmember. Although he was tied off to the structure, his left leg contacted a wind brace while his right forearm touched one of the deenergized overhead power line conductors. This conductor was energized by induced current, and the employee was electrocuted.
