Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201510690Event: 02/01/2010Employee Is Burned By Arc Flash
Employee #1, an electrician working for Lehigh Southwest Cement Company, was working on a MCC panel. It had 480 volts and three phase energized buss bars behind a steel back plate. Employee #1 had two screwdrivers and a pair of wire cutters sitting on the tray at the bottom of the panel. One of the screwdrivers began to roll, and he went to secure it. However, the end of the screwdriver went under a narrow slot at the bottom of the back plate. It contacted the 480 volts buss bar, resulting in an arc flash. The arc flash contacted his right hand between his thumb and index finger. He was transported to the local hospital for burn treatment and then flown to the UC Davis Burn Center, where he was hospitalized for two nights.
