Plumbing Foreman Is Burned By Hot Water

At 11:45 a.m. on March 16, 2017, Employee #1, a foreman, and Coworker #1, his he lper, both employed by a plumbing contractor, were working at a job site, replac ing/upgrading coils and valves, work that required them to cut pipes without shu tting off the water. They were using "Qwik-Freeze" equipment on a copper pipe c arrying hot water at approximately 185 degrees Fahrenheit. This specialized equ ipment is used to create an ice plug in the pipe so that the water need not be s hut off. Employee #1, standing on a ladder to access the pipe, cut the pipe whi le Coworker #1 handed up tools and parts. A tool Employee #1 was using was inad equate for the job, and so he capped the pipe and left to obtain a new tool. Wh en he returned, as he resumed working, the ice plug failed, and hot water began coming out of the pipe, soaking through Employee #1's gloves. Emergency service s were called, and Employee #1 was transported to the hospital. He was admitted and treated for burns to both hands.
