Do you have workers who clean in confined spaces? Here’s a cautionary tale for them.
A worker at a soup factory in Germany died after getting trapped inside a giant cauldron and cooking to death, according to the newspaper, Bild.
The man had climbed into the cauldron at the Eraso soup factory to clean it.
The cauldron’s lid suddenly closed while the man was still inside. It started to fill with steam as part of the disinfection process.
A doctor confirmed the man had been cooked to death.
