On January 8, 2001, Employee #1 was transferring a batch of resin from reactor Number 3 to a cooling tank. He was unable to see tank level through the site glass so he opened a manhole used to add raw material and looked into the tank to see the level. At that time, a flash fire occurred in the reactor causing first and second degree burns to his face, neck and ears. His head and eyes were protected by a hard hat and safety glasses which were required by the company. He was transported to a hospital were he was treated and released.
