Normally these types of fatalities are caused during maintenance but in some of these high speed processes there can be static electricity build up which is normally managed by processes in the machine.  No word yet on the cause.

If this was a maintence work situation NFPA 70E and OSHA standards would apply and can prevent these types of injuries withgood engineering, work practices,  training, engineering, PPE for electrical safety.
