On May 3, 2015 at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) Technical Area 53, during Preventative Maintenance on a 13.8-kV electrical substation, a wireman entered a cubicle on the energized portion of the switchgear to clean it with a commercial spray cleaner and suffered severe injuries from the resulting arc flash and blast. This is a video of a recorded presentation at an Argonne National Laboratory ISM Colloquium presented by LANL Deputy Chief Electrical Safety Officer Tommy R.
