Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 14486161Event: 03/05/1986Employee Dies Of Asphyxia In Shipboard Confined Space
Employee #1 and a coworker were assigned to prepare the auxiliary diesel fire pump in a ship's sixth level chambers for inspection. The 15-ft by 16-ft by 15-ft chamber contained only the pump, the drive, and a fire suppression system consisting of three carbon dioxide cylinders. The only exit from this chamber was a steel ladder through a 30-in. by 30-in. vertical shaft. The carbon dioxide cylinders had been accidentally discharged in the chamber, effectively removing all oxygen from the atmosphere. Upon entering the area, Employee #1 was overcome; he died of asphyxia. The coworker escaped without injury.
