On March 21, 1996, Employee #1, a security guard, was working the swing shift at Pacific Gas & Electric's Martin Service Center, a portion of which was an active hazardous waste site. It was raining heavily, and some of the standing water entered his shoes. He felt increasingly ill, but continued making his rounds. When he got home and took his shoes off, he noticed large blisters on his feet. Employee #1 sought medical attention that same morning and was hospitalized for four days for treatment of chemical burns.
