Other Frequently Asked Questions

Click to Learn More What are the consequences of not training?

Case Study: In Oakland, California, an employee of an electroplating company was cleaning the interior of a wastewater treatment tank containing toxic acids and cyanide sludge. After some time working, he became fatally overcome by cyanide gas. When a second employee entered the tank to rescue the coworker, he was also overcome by the cyanide gas and died. Several other employees were hospitalized as a result of their involvement in the rescue and cleanup operations.

Criminal charges were filed and a fine of nearly one million dollars was assessed. The employer was cited for a number of safety violations, including failure to do the following: prevent unauthorized entry into a confined space, develop and implement a confined space program, specify acceptable entry conditions, label tanks to indicate their contents, and test for oxygen deficiency.

Key Takeaways: The employer in this case made almost every possible error with regard to work in a permit-required confined space. As a result of this criminal negligence, numerous employees lost their lives or their good health. A confined space program and placing a priority on testing and training could have prevented this tragedy.
