Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 200270601
Event: 01/06/1995
Seven Employees Treated For Carbon Monoxide Inhalation

On January 6, 1995, three contractor employees were removing an old waste heat duct from the gas-fired boiler room at a corn processing plant. At the time, four administrative employees were working in or near the boiler room. The contractor employees began to suffer symptoms consistent with carbon monoxide poisoning; all three had elevated levels of carboxyhemoglobin and were hospitalized. As a precaution, the four administrative employees were also taken to the hospital, where they treated and released. The source of the carbon monoxide was traced to the improperly tuned and leaking boilers.

Keywords:maintenance, vapor, ventilation, boiler, inhalation, air contamination, carboxyhemoglobin, chemical vapor, overexposure, carbon monoxide
