Lessons Learned: Environmental Spill

An employee was transporting paint materials to a confined work location with the aide of a client owned wheeled transportation cart. A deck level piping system protected by a ramp was obstructing the route, when the cart crested the top of the ramp the paint materials shifted and a one gallon paint can containing a paint hardening material fell approximately 3 ft to the grating. The impact resulted in the can lid releasing and material escaping onto a lower deck and into the open sea.
