This OSHA Injury Report was compiled directly from data that is publicly available from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA Injury Reports can be helpful in understanding the types of workplace injury claims involving defective products or malfunctioning equipment in the workplace. 

The manufacturers of defective equipment or machinery resulting in a worker injury may be found to be negligent and liable for damages in a separate civil lawsuit. You may be able to recover damages on top of a workers’ comp claim if injured in a job accident caused, in part, by a third party. These third party personal injury cases should be given responsible legal guidance.

Trammell Piazza Law Firm claims no responsibility for any errors or inconsistencies in OSHA’s data.

DATE: 08/19/20

On 8/19/2020, at 6:20 a.m., an employee was performing routine cleaning on a reclaim pelletizer. While performing this task, the employee attempted to activate the dump valve that stores hot water. Due to an internal defect on the pipe valve, the hot water did not drain out completely. As the employee released the locking collar, the stored water released through the gap, spraying hot water onto the employee. The employee sustained first and second degree thermal burns to the chest and left arm.
