Employee #1 was working in an annealing lab when he was overcome by carbon monoxide. His carboxyhemoglobin level was 24.5 when he was tested approximately three hours after he was found. It was later determined that the carbon monoxide had leaked into the lab because an exhaust hose from an analyzer panel had not been reconnected after maintenance was performed over the weekend.
