This OSHA Injury Report was compiled directly from data that is publicly available from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA Injury Reports can be helpful in understanding the types of workplace injury claims involving defective products or malfunctioning equipment in the workplace. 

The manufacturers of defective equipment or machinery resulting in a worker injury may be found to be negligent and liable for damages in a separate civil lawsuit. You may be able to recover damages on top of a workers’ comp claim if injured in a job accident caused, in part, by a third party. These third party personal injury cases should be given responsible legal guidance.

Trammell Piazza Law Firm claims no responsibility for any errors or inconsistencies in OSHA’s data.

Report: Direct exposure to electricity, greater than 220 volts at Newtron Beaumont, LLC in Port Neches, Texas

DATE: 05/23/16

An employee was helping to inspect an electrical line and repairing a jumper that came off the transformer switch. The employee pulled two of the three switches to de-energize the pole line and then repositioned his bucket truck to get to the next switch. When he grabbed the wire to reinstall it onto the third switch, the switch was energized and caused third degree burns to his index, middle, and ring fingers on both hands.
