Abstract
A two-man crew of electricians was installing new wiring through an existing conduit in a department store ceiling. While using a personnel lift to work overhead, one of the workers made contact with an energized 277 volt electrical circuit. He was electrocuted and fell out of the lift. FACE investigators concluded that in order to prevent future similar occurrences employers and employees must: 1. deenergize all electrical circuits whenever any chance of making contact exists; 2. utilize fall protection whenever a chance of a serious fall exists.
