On February 2, 2002, Employee #1 was manually adding dry sodium hydroxide to a water filled tank as part of a routine tank cleaning operation when he accidentally splashed the chemical on his face, arms, and legs. Employee #1 was taken to the hospital where he was treaded for second and third degree chemical burns over five percent of his body. It appears that Employee #1 may have been adding the sodium hydroxide to the water too quickly and he was not wearing appropriate PPE.
