At approximately 7:50 p.m. on December 11, 1994, Employee #1 was using Clorox bleach to clean the sink area. The bleach was stored in gallon bottles on the floor, beneath a shelf. The shelf was low, so in order to remove a bottle, Employee #1 had to tip it toward her. The bottle's cap was loose, and as she pulled the bottle the cap fell off, splashing bleach in her eyes. She was taken to the hospital, where she was treated and released after approximately one hour; she sustained no serious injuries. Employee #1 was not using eye protection, and there was no approved eye wash on the job site.
