KS: GM Electrical Blast…Arc Flash?

KANSAS CITY, KS:  A maintenance worker has been critically injured in an electrical explosion at the General Motors’ Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Kan.  The Kansas City Star reports that the accident occurred at the auto plant early Sunday while a contract employee was working on an electrical substation breaker box. The man was hospitalized with burns on his torso.  GM spokeswoman Lauren Indiveri Fitapelli says Monday that the injured man sustained significant burns, but she did not have his hospital condition.  She says the cause of the electrical accident is under way and that work there was not affected because the plant is shut down until July 16 and running with a minimal staff.  She also says the blast caused only minor damage to the building.
