Managing a chemical accident with Diphoterine® solution at Consorcio de Aguas Bilbao Bizkaia

During the unblocking operation of a caustic soda pipe, a worker laid his arms on another pipe that contained remnants of soda. He burnt his forearms (at the limit zone of the protecting gloves). The worker realized the presence of the burn at the end of his work and applied Diphoterine® solution (SIEW) before going to the prevention department. As some time has elapsed by then and the injury was hurting, a whole Diphoterine® solution spray (miniDAP) was applied. The symptoms of the chemical injury disappeared quickly.
