Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201261641Event: 07/01/2004Employee Is Dead From Asphyxia When Exposed To Nitrogen
On July 1, 2004, Employee #1, a lyophilizer (freeze dryer) operator, entered the chamber of the machine to perform lubrication, which was required under the preventative maintenance program. Employee #1 was not authorized to perform lockout procedures and so the nitrogen was not isolated. When co-workers found Employee #1 in a non-responsive state they noticed that nitrogen was being released into the confined space where Employee #1 was working.
