					3. Electrocution
A 41-year-old subcontractor died while installing vinyl siding and trim to the exterior of a church
building. The victim and his business partner used a Gradall all-terrain powered industrial truck during
the installation process. The business partner worked installing the siding from inside an elevated
metal frame platform (30 to 35 feet from the ground) attached to the boom of the powered industrial
truck. The victim operated the boom from the cab of the truck. When the time came for the victim to
lower the boom, the right-side hand railing of the platform came in contact with a 14kv distribution
power line located near the building. The victim in the cab of the Gradall received an electric shock
and died at the scene. No citations were issued because the business was a partnership and was not
incorporated. The victim was, therefore, not an employee.
