Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201693355Event: 10/30/2009Employee'S Hand Is Injected With Paint
At approximately 11:00 p.m. on October 30, 2009, Employee #1, who was employed by Craft Labor and Support Services, was working at NASSCO, a company that built and repaired ships. As Employee #1's secondary employer, NASSCO had direction and control over him. Employee # 1 was high-pressure spray painting at unit #217. Employee #1 stated that as he was pulling the air hose and the gun, he inadvertently pointed the Graco high pressure paint gun nozzle at his left hand and sprayed it. Employee #1's ring and middle finger area were injected with paint, at a pressure of greater than 4,000 psi. Employee #1 was hospitalized for required surgery to treat the injury. NASSCO provided painters with both cotton and Nitri-Solve rubber gloves. Employee #1 was wearing a Nitri-Solve glove, at the time of the accident. NASSCO was cited failure to provide hand protection, in the form of appropriate gloves for high-pressure spray painting.
