Contract Worker Injured at Boeing in WA – Probable Arc Flash

EVERETT, WA — A Boeing contract worker was hospitalized Monday after being burned in an industrial accident at the Everett plant, officials said.

The worker was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Boeing officials declined to provide details about the worker or the severity of the injuries.

The incident was reported to 911 just after 11 a.m., Everett city spokeswoman Kate Reardon said. A caller told dispatchers there was what sounded like an explosion and possible fire.

The injured person was a Sequoyah Electric employee, Boeing officials said. The incident remains under investigation.

No further details were released.

 
Note from blogger – Being that there was a loud noise and the worker was burned, it is very likely the accident was from an electrical arc flash.
