Case Study: Five workers descended into a compartment of the Apex No. 1, a barge in East Ootsa Lake, west of Prince George in British Columbia, on October 4, 2001. A crew of workers was refurbishing the 23-year-old barge, which had been in storage since 1991. A worker opened three of the barge's hatches and climbed down to look for cracks in the hull integrity. He was gone at least fifteen minutes before anyone noticed that he was missing. The compartment had been sealed for about three years, since a 1998 inspection. It was the only one of nine hull compartments whose hatch had no ventilation holes. Each worker who entered the compartment passed out at the bottom of the ladder. The first worker to descend into the compartment died at the scene. Four other workers who attempted to rescue him also passed out but survived.

Key Takeaway: An investigation showed that rusting had depleted the oxygen inside the compartment and left the air unfit to breathe. According to Workers' Compensation Board findings, "the sealed compartment's air was between 15.7 percent and 16.4 percent oxygen - low enough that it cannot support human life for long." Each worker made it only to the bottom of a two-meter ladder before collapsing. It is believed that none of the workers used safety equipment, such as air tanks or ropes.
