Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 14386809Event: 01/19/1990Employee Killed, Possibly By Hazardous Waste Absorption
Employee #1, a hazardous waste worker who worked at regular sites, performed emergency responses that exposed him to a variety of chemicals. One week, he handled two emergency responses that exposed him to Moiestan (a pesticide) and phorates. The Moiestan pesticide response involved employees in level C ppe rather than level B, as required by the industry safety standard. Employee #1 died the following week. The previous exposures combined with an open wound on his heel could have caused Employee #1's death. The coroner had not determined yet if chemical exposure lead to his death.
