The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating an electrical arc flash event at the construction site of a Veterans Affairs hospital in Tallahassee, Fla.
According to a report from The Tallahassee Democrat, two workers were injured on Tuesday while they were working on an energized electrical panel.
Dispatch notes from a Tallahassee Fire Department incident report said two men were involved in an electrical accident while working in a high-voltage area in a maintenance room. The report said power to the source was turned off after the incident.
Leon County Emergency Medical Services took one person to Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare. The other was flown to Shands Hospital in Gainesville. Details of their injuries were unavailable on Wednesday.
No changes have been made in light of the incident, and construction will continue, according to The Democrat's report.
The VA facility will be called the Tallahassee Health Care Center once its completed. The 196,000-square-foot building will replace two VA clinics in town, and provide a range of medical services, from dentistry to surgery. Adams said the building will be complete by July 30.
