The agenda for the meeting includes the presentation of the findings from the CSB investigation into the March 21, 2011, furnace explosion that occurred at the Carbide Industries facility located in Louisville, KY. Two workers were killed and two were injured when an electric arc furnace (EAF) over pressured and emitted powdered debris, hot gases, and molten calcium carbide. The hot gases and debris blown from the furnace broke through the double-pane reinforced glass window of the control room, severely burning the two workers inside; they died within 24 hours from burn injuries. At the meeting, CSB staff will present to the Board the results of the investigation into this incident. Key issues identified in the investigation include facility siting and the effectiveness of safety standards that cover electric arc furnaces. Following the staff presentation on proposed findings and safety recommendations, the Board will hear brief comments from the public. Following the conclusion of the public comment period, the Board will consider whether to approve the final case study and recommendations. All staff presentations are preliminary and are intended solely to allow the Board to consider in a public forum the issues and factors involved in this case. No factual analyses, conclusions, or findings presented by staff should be considered final. Only after the Board has considered the staff presentations, listened to public comments, and adopted a final investigation report and recommendations will there be an approved final record of the CSB investigation of this incident.
