INJURY FROM HOT OIL SPILL


3rd Oct. 05

During routine checking for leakage in a fuel-oil hot filter, I removed the lagging during a night watch.

The lagging had a lot of oil solidified, and in the process of removing it a small pipe connecting the two filters came out with the lagging, causing hot oil to spill on my foot, burning it badly.

Observations (in retrospect)

1: Pump was not stopped prior commencing work.
2: Working without support in Engine room.
