Summary Nr: 200361889Event: 09/03/2013Employee Suffers Facial Burns When Sprayed With Degreaser
On September 3, 2013, Employee #1 was performing cleaning operations on evaporator #2 immediately adjacent to a grease house at the facility. The employee finished the first part of the cleaning operation where an industrial grade degreaser was introduced into the system. Employee #1 removed a hose from the water pump and the pressure in the hose caused the employee to lose control which resulted in Employee #1 being sprayed in the face with the degreaser and hot water mixture. Employee #1 was transported to an area hospital, where he was treated for facial burns and later released.
