An Electronics Engineering Technologist received a 120 VAC minor electrical shock to the right index finger.
A portable work light was plugged into a rack-mounted outlet strip. The plug had backed out partially from the receptacle. When the employee reached in to perform work, they did not see this condition and their fingertip brushed up against the exposed, energized prong of the plug.
The outlet strip is inside and facing towards the front of the cabinet.
The employee immediately reported the shock and was sent to medical for evaluation. Following an EKG with no abnormalities detected, the employee was released with no injury.
