Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 126088616
Event: 02/25/2003
Employee Burned While Welding

At approximately 4:45 p.m. on February 25, 2003, Employee #1, an auto mechanic, was doing a brake job on a truck at the employer's auto shop. He removed the parts on the wheel to evaluate the condition of the brake. Since the brake was covered with grease and dust, he first cleaned the backing plate, on which the brake pad is attached to, with Kwik Solv that was provided by the employer. Because he did not use the drip-catch pan below the backing plate, the Kwik Solv dripped on the floor. Employee #1 welded the backing plate, which was located approximately 10 inches above where the Kwik Solv dripped. He was using electric arc welding equipment and the Kwik Solv on the floor caught fire, burning Employee #1. Kwik Solv is a flammable liquid (class 1B) with the flash point of 25 degrees Fahrenheit and vapor pressure of 32.8 mm of mercury. Employee #1 sustained second- and third-degree burns to his left calf and was hospitalized.
