AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -
Operations have come to a halt at the scene of a deadly electrical incident, as OSHA begins an investigation.

It was a rainy afternoon Saturday when the call came in...The Amarillo Fire Department responded to a report of smoke coming from the under construction Xcel building downtown.

When crews entered they found Roper Copelin and Keath Garrison had been burned and possibly electrocuted. Employees on scene reported Copelin and Garrison were drilling into an electrical box and may have made contact with energized lines.  A fire was started, but brought under control in minutes.

They were both transported to a local hospital, and shortly after flown to Lubbock. Copelin passed away early Sunday morning and Garrison remains in critical condition.

In a statement, Opus Design Build LLC tells us work on the site has come to a halt, as officials continue their inspection of the scene. Amarillo Fire Marshal's investigators are trying to determine exactly what started Saturday's blaze.

"We have reached out to OSHA who tells us they are also conducting their own investigation, but officials are not sure how long it might take.
Xcel spokesman Wes Reeves says it will likely take a week or better before they can offer an assessment on the timing of their move."

Follow Up Inspection Finds Workers Remain Exposed to Machine & Fall Hazards
January 18,  2017  
COSHOCTON, Ohio

A follow-up inspection by the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration found a casting and foundry facility operator continues to expose workers to machine and fall hazards at its Coshocton plant.

On Jan. 17, 2017, the agency issued SanCasT Inc. three repeated,and four serious safety violations carrying proposed penalties of $235,879. The agency cited the company for similar violations in both 2013 and 2014.

"Companies cited repeatedly for the same safety violations demonstrate a lack of concern for employee safety," said Larry Johnson, OSHA's area director in Columbus. "Manufacturing facilities need to take a hard look at machinery operations, guarding and safety training to protect employees from injuries on the job."

In its inspection, OSHA found the company:
  • Failed to develop and implement adequate lockout/tag out procedures and periodically inspect such procedures.
  • Exposed workers to live electrical contacts.
  • Did not install machine guards.
  • Exposed workers to fall hazards because guardrails lacked a top rail and floor holes were not covered.
Based in Wilmerding, Pennsylvania, SanCasT is a subsidiary of Wabtec which manufactures parts and equipment for locomotives, freight cars and passenger transit vehicles.

Electrocuted Electrician Brought Back To Life

Maryland first-responders brought an electrician back to life after he was electrocuted while on the job Wednesday afternoon.  The man was working on the electric in the ceiling at an office building in Rockville when he came in contact with high-voltage lines, Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Lt. Daniel Ballantine said.
 
"On the way to the call we were told cardiac arrest for electrocution," he said.
The electrician's coworkers kicked his ladder to get him away from the electrical source without anyone else getting electrocuted.

"The biggest thing that they did for him was to kick the ladder out from underneath of him so he could fall to the ground," Ballantine said.
When the ambulance arrived, the man had been dead for at least five minutes. He wasn't breathing, so the paramedics hooked him up to a defibrillator.

"Once we applied the AED, it was determined that the patient needed to be shocked," Thomas Buckmaster said. "We then shocked the patient with the defibrillator and he was able to breathe on his own, and we were able to get a pulse back."
Buckmaster and his partner rushed the man to emergency at Shady Grove Medical Center, where he was able to recover.

"A life was saved and ... somebody gets to make it to Christmas," Buckmaster said.
