Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200263879Event: 05/17/2010Employee Is Electrocuted While Setting Up Rig
On May 17, 2010, employees were setting up Saxon Drilling Rig Number 140, in Damascus, AR. The employees were connecting power lines to the generator house, while the generator was running without proper grounding. One employee was on the ground, throwing the male end of a 277-volt, three-phase hook-up line from the "M.C.C." (apparently motor control center) to Employee #1, who was on top of the generator house. The employee on the ground noticed that Employee #1 was not standing. Employee #1 had been electrocuted by backfeed through the M.C.C. The employee on the ground and other employees rushed to Employee #1 and administered CPR, until EMS arrived. Employee #1 was carried to Ozark Health Medical Center in Clinton, where he was pronounced dead.
