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.
