The operator was near the pipe when it failed and was splashed with an unknown quantity (less than 1 liter) of the diluted chemical. He was wearing a chemical proof jacket, gloves, safety glasses, face shield and hard hat. He went directly to the nearby eyewash station and as a precaution rinsed his face and neck with water to be certain no chemical was on his skin. There was no contact with the chemical.
