  • Cal OSHA cites Bumble Bee for death of man in tuna oven

    Details emerge about how Bumble Bee worker died in pressure cooker - latimes.com
    The workers waited about 30 minutes for the oven to cool down before they could open it. Melena's body was eventually found at the exit side of the oven. Firefighters pronounced him dead at the scene.

    The Santa Fe Springs tuna company was issued "serious" citations for failing to evaluate and identify the 10 ovens in the production area as hazardous and permit-required spaces.

    Something doesn't sound quite right here; it seems that the door should have been arranged so it could be opened from the inside. All walk-in coolers and freezers are this way, it's been a regulation for years.

    As sort of a side note, a basic closet in your average house is classified as a confined space per OSHAs regulations.

    From my experience, requiring a permit to enter an oven such as this one will not prevent similar incidents.

    The real answer is to provide an easy means of escape.

      Scary as all hell, and what could be more disgusting?

      And did workers clean and reuse the equipment?
