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.

Report: Contact with hot objects or substances at Remington Arms Company, LLC in Lonoke, Arkansas

DATE: 01/08/18

An employee was heating water in a stainless steel work sink to perform a cleaning operation. The water began boiling, so the employee introduced cold water into the bottom of the sink to cool it down. The reaction of the cold and hot water and the force of the water going into the bottom of the sink caused the water to spew out from the sink and splash onto the employee. He sustained second degree burns to the front of both of his legs and a spot on his abdomen and right forearm. The water was estimated to be at a temperature of 212 degrees.
