Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200074722Event: 04/28/2011Two Employees Are Burned When Flammable Vapors Ignite
On April 28, 2011, two employees were working at a scrap metal dealer. Employee #1 was removing a valve stem assembly from a scrapped, 5-gallon LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) cylinder. Employee #2 was using an oxy-propane (apparently oxygen-propane) cutting torch to cut-up scrap metal pieces. The two employees were approximately 6 feet apart. LPG vapors escaped from the cylinder, blew towards Employee #2, and were ignited by the lit torch. Both employees sustained serious burns, and they were hospitalized.
