Arkansas Electrical Worker Stumbles into Energized Switchgear

FAYETTEVILLE, AR. –Officials with Ozarks Electric say an employee is still recovering following electrical contact.

Safety officials from both Ozarks Electric and Arkansas Electric recently completed their investigation of the incident that occurred April 15 in a new subdivision near the Farmington Elementary school.

Evidence shows the contact occurred while the worker was applying cable-pulling lubricant to a conduit. He then lost his balance and stumbled into the energized switchgear. A spokeswoman for Ozarks Electric said it was a routine procedure turned tragic.

Emergency responders from the Fayetteville Fire Department arrived on the scene within minutes of the accident and the victim was transported to Washington Regional Medical Center.
