Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 839951Event: 10/04/1995Three Employees Injured When Flammable Vapors Ignited
Employees #2 and #3 were cleaning a spray paint can filling line. They were flushing the paint line with toluene and running the waste solvent into a 5-gallon open plastic pail. The solvent splashed into the pail and generated considerable spray. Apparently, the splashing solvent generated a static charge, produced a spark, and ignited the solvent vapors. Employee #3, who was leaning over the pail, and Employee #2, who was holding the hose used to fill the pail, were burned and hospitalized. Employee #1 was exposed to carbon monoxide while trying to fight the fire.
Keywords: burn, static electricity, flammable liquid, work rules, cleaning, fire, toluene, spark, arm, carbon monoxide
