Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201342649Event: 09/13/2002Two Employees Are Burned In Distillery Explosion
On September 13, 2002, Employees #1 and #2 were working in the vicinity of the A-still when it was started. One of the manhole covers in the absorption column was apparently open and flammable alcohol vapors escaped and exploded in flame. Employees #1 and #2 both sustained burns, for which they were hospitalized. Previously, the absorption column had been opened to inspect the corn grits process and apparently one of the manholes had not been closed. No lockout and tagout procedures were used when the absorption column was opened, and there was no verification process in place to ensure that all the manhole covers were closed before the still was activated.
