HYDRAULIC INJECTION INCIDENT A warning to us all

HYDRAULIC INJECTION INCIDENT A warning to us all Aberdeen Hydraulic Injection caused a pinprick intrusion to the IPs hand. Hydraulic Fluid in use was a Mineral Oil Unknown at present Pressure of fluid was 630Bar( approx 9,150 psi) Equipment in use: Scissor

cutters used at Road Traffic Accidents to release occupants. Location of Accident: Fire Service Training Ground Risk Assessments were in place and Full PPE was worn. Events Training Session under controlled conditions within Brigade Training Premises IP was to cut through sample vehicle using scissors. Normal practise at time was for the hydraulic hose to be run over

operators shoulder to tool in use. Hose ruptured at ferrule area resulting in release of fluid through PPE (Leather gauntlets) to IPs hand. What Happened Next IP went to A&E and initial prognosis was keep clean and rest. By chance a specialist observed and intervened.

Mineral Oil had already started to eat away fatty tissues in hand and began travelling through the hand and up the arm. IP had 5 operations to cut away oil deposits and was on his last chance before losing arm. It was successful Wound could not be sutured due to tissue damage by oil so wound was gradually closed over weeks. Results IP was eventually medically

discharged from force and is severely disabled in this hand. Hydraulic Fluid in use has been changed to Aero Shell Fluid 4. Fire Brigade has passed learning's on to its associated Brigades. Litigation is in place: IP to Brigade Brigade to Equipment Manufacturers. IP awaits final outcome Timescale: 2 years and counting
