Abstract: On December 6, 2004, Employee #1 was filling containers with Loyal Oven and Grill Cleaner, which has a pH of 13.5. The filling machine malfunctioned and did not automatically stop the cleaner from dispensing. Employee #1 pulled the air hose on the back of the machine. Although this stopped the product from dripping, she brushed her left thigh on a portion that had the cleaner on it. Employee #1 suffered a chemical burn on her left thigh. She was hospitalized, where she was treated for her injury and underwent skin grafts. The accident investigation revealed that Employee #1 was not wearing safety glasses, gloves, cotton and polyester long-sleeved over coat, shirt and jeans. In addition, she was not wearing a chemical resistant apron.
