Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 37116.015Event: 12/28/2012Employee Is Killed By Explosion
At 3:00 a.m. on December 28, 2012, an employee and a coworker were in the proces s of removing the metal frame from an oxygen generator's filters contaminated wi th sodium chlorate. This was the first time the employee and coworker had been i nstructed to perform this duty. They had been instructed to remove the metal end caps and structural metal mesh components of the filter elements with a hatchet and a pry bar tool. They had not been successful at accomplishing this task wit h those tools and had requested and received permission to utilize a portable el ectric reciprocating saw. The coworker noted that during the cutting process, on e of the filters he was cutting on began to smolder. They stopped to look at the filter and noticed a small bright orange flash, followed by a larger blast orig inating from the filter directly into the torso of the employee. This blast knoc ked the coworker to the ground and away from the event. Another larger blast fol lowed, which caused the employee to receive fatal burns to approximately 85% of his body.
