Lessons Learnt: Burn Injury to Engineer

Playtime: 03:5514/07/2020

When carrying out a routine inspection of the engine room, the first engineer noticed steam leaking from the main steam dump valve gasket. The second and third engineers were instructed to stop the boiler operation and drain all steam and water from the system, ensuring it was empty and depressurised. 

Once complete, the first engineer removed the valve bonnet as steam and hot water blew out from the joint at high pressure causing extensive burns to his face and body. 

This video explores what lessons can be learnt from this incident.
