Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200556546Event: 06/14/2011Electric Shock - Direct Contact With Energized Conductor
Two employees were repairing the compressor on a Trane air conditioning unit installed on the roof of a building. The unit had two compressors and was capable of running at 50 percent of full power. The employees had not deenergized the air conditioning unit at the panelboard, but the unit's switch was open while they dismantled the broken compressor. One of the workers removed the coil wire for the old compressor, and the employees closed the unit's switch. The workers set the new compressor in place, but did not connect the wiring to the compressor before they took a break. After the break, one of the workers began to connect the new compressor by removing electrical tape from the wiring. He contacted an energized 277-volt conductor and was electrocuted.
