Sabic Innovative Plastics, Spain - phenol derivative

Circumptance of the accident: An employee was carrying out heat of insulation work. When he was removing the foam from a valve, suddenly he felt heat on his right hand. When he realized this, the glove was already damaged, without knowing what chemical it was at first. He immediately came to the medical department. The estimated time when he arrived was 1-2 minutes being given the proximity of the place of the accident. The origin of the accident was a leak of a derivative of phenol from valves that he was handling. At the time of the medical management, he had a first degree burn at the second and the third finger of right hand and the glove was completely destroyed by chemical contact. A direct washing with 200 ml of the DIPHOTERINE® solution was performed using the entire package, until a symptomatic improvement was reached and the visible results of the photo achieved. Evaluation of the results: the subjective and objective valorisation of the obtained results was clearly satisfactory, without any signs of lesions from burns after the applied treatment.
