Case Scenario:

The paper should be at least five to seven pages in length, be written using APA format

 

On July 5, 1985, a 27-year-old sewer worker entered an underground pumping station (8′ x 8′ x 7′) via a fixed ladder inside a three-foot diameter shaft. Although this was clearly a confined space, it was not marked as a designated confined space.

 

Because the work crew had worked in the area several times without issues, they felt comfortable that they would be able to complete this task and could later meet the other crew at a bar for drinks after work. They were unaware that there was a procedure in place to isolate the work area and ensure that the pump had been bypassed. Thus, the transfer line that the worker was going to repair was still under pressure.

 

As the worker began to remove the bolts, he noted some sewage coming from the bolt but continued on, as he did not want his co-workers to ridicule his apprehension.

 

When the workers removed the bolts from an inspection plate that covered a check valve, the force of the waste water blew the inspection plate off, which allowed sewage to flood the chamber and trap one of the workers nearby.

 

A co-worker, a supervisor, and a policeman attempted a rescue, and all three died. The first two deaths appeared to be due to drowning, and the latter two appeared to be due to asphyxiation as a result of inhalation of “sewer gas.”
