Fatal Incident Caused from Failure of Gas Cartridge Fire Extinguisher

Description of Incident.

A fatal injury occurred  in Indonesia resulting from the operation of a gas cartridge type Dry Chemical Powder filled fire extinguisher (DCP). Upon activating the fire extinguisher, the bottom of the extinguisher body failed. The fire extinguisher propelled upwards and struck the fire extinguisher operator in the neck and chin area resulting in fatal injury.

There was signs of corrosion on the base of the extinguisher - It is thought that this may have contributed to the fire extinguisher failure.  As a precautionary measure it is advised that all cartridge type fire extinguishers (in simple terms those which do not have a pressure gauge attached) should be removed from the service and replaced.

Action to be taken.

Visually inspect all gas cartridge operated fire extinguisher that are located in potentially corrosive environments. Please check for signs o significant corrosion or severe pitting on the body and base of the fire extinguisher. Where there is a sign of corrosion or sever pitting on the extinguisher, take the extinguisher out of service immediately and replace it with a new unit.

 During inspection, accessories such as rubber bases or mounting brackets should be removed to ensure a complete visual examination of the unit. If you are in doubt to the severity of the corrosion, take the extinguisher out of service and have it tested in time with manufactures’ guidelines. Potentially corrosive environments include:

  • Fire extinguisher stored outside, unprotected from the weather
  • Fire extinguisher stored in wet or damp environments or in potential standing water.
  • Fire extinguisher stored near marine environments, jetties, platforms, shipping any facility located near salt water
  • Fire extinguisher stored on or near chemical processing facilities.

Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help,the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.

However,these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.

A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.

Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.

Fall Distance Calculation

Remember that a risk assessment is vital for any aspect of fall protection. Having all the equipment on site and having a fall which lands you on an object, or leaves you hanging in the wind may only add to, or increase the chances of injury or death. 

Particular care should be taken when using lanyards as they have a fixed distance that you can fall, unlike fall arrest blocks which will activate immediately and limit the distance that you can travel.

Confined spaces

Confined spaces can be awkward and uncomfortable work areas. Not only that, many workplace hazards are generally even more hazardous when they’re in confined spaces. That’s why OSHA requires special precautions and written permits for most confined space tasks. 

 OSHA defines a “confined space” as one whose size and shape allows an employee to enter and perform assigned work, is not designed to be occupied continuously, and has limited or restricted means for getting in and out.   

Confined spaces can be tanks, storage bins, vessels, silos, hoppers, vaults, and pits.

Gas Cylinder Safety

If a cylinder is damaged, in poor condition, leaking, or the contents are unknown, contact your cylinder vendor. 

Things Not To Do: 

• Never roll a cylinder to move it. 
• Never carry a cylinder by the valve. 
• Never leave an open cylinder unattended.
• Never leave a cylinder unsecured.
• Never force improper attachments on to the wrong cylinder.
• Never grease or oil the regulator, valve, or fittings of an oxygen cylinder.
• Never refill a cylinder.
• Never use a flame to locate gas leaks.
• Never attempt to mix gases in a cylinder.
• Never discard pressurized cylinders in the normal trash.

Arc Flash Hazard

An estimated 75-80% of all serious electrical injures are related to electrical arcs created during short circuits, ground faults, and switching procedures. In recognition of this fact, standards organizations have provided the industry with techniques to evaluate the magnitude of the electrical arc flash hazard and recommend appropriate protective clothing and equipment.

The principal factors used to determine the arc flash hazard are:

1) Available short circuit current at the arc location
2) Duration of the electrical arc
3) Distance from the arc to personnel
4) Arc gap.

To accurately assess the arc flash hazard and make appropriate decisions regarding personal protective clothing and equipment, it’s necessary to understand fully the operation of the system under fault conditions.

Description of the accident:

A worker was erecting a formwork for drainage on a approximately 2.5 m deep excavation when it suddenly collapsed trapping him in between the formwork and ply-board used as a temporary wall to support the excavation.
Before it happens, a prop was used to support the ply-board but somebody removed it in order to give way to the formwork that was to be erected. Prior to this incident, it was observed that a JCB excavator was seen delivering materials near the excavated area. Hence, this is the possible cause of the incident that it might have disturbed the integrity of the excavation.
Fortunately, the injured person sustained minor injuries, because he was trap only up to the knee level.

Cause of the accident:

The protection of the excavation is UNSAFE or inadequate shoring.


Keeping workers safe when they are working in excavation is to - first, determine the soil type by consulting the geotechnical report and second, once the soil type has been identified, then you can use one of the types of excavation protective system illustrated below:

A.    Shoring/Shielding
If excavation is too deep, use shoring method to support the sides of excavation with vertical, horizontal and cross braces to prevent cave-ins and collapse. 

B.    Benching Method
Benching method involves cutting the sides of the excavation to form one or more horizontal levels or steps with vertical surfaces between levels.

C.    Sloping Method

If an excavation is less than 4 m deep, sloping the sides of excavation is a good option. Slope angles should be determined by the soil type.
