Carrefour Ratu Plaza has been closed for the past 2 days due to CO (not CO2 as reported) poisoning of dozens of its employees ... "garis polisi" tape now blocks the front entrance.

gassing was caused by an electrical fault, which shut down fume exhaust fans in the basement parking area.


From detik.com:

Puluhan Karyawan Carrefour Ratu Plaza Keracunan CO2

Jakarta - Puluhan karyawan Carrefour Ratu Plaza dilarikan ke RS Pusat Pertamina (RSPP), Jakarta. Mereka keracunan zat karbondioksida (CO2) ketika sedang bekerja.

"Ya Mas, disini ada lebih 30 karyawan Carrefour Ratu Plaza keracunan CO2," ujar Supervisor Nurse RSPP Eny Suswati pada detikcom, Jl Kyai Maja, Jakarta Selatan, Selasa (1/5/2007).

Menurut Eny, mereka datang di RSPP sekitar pukul 18.00 WIB. Belum diketahui dari mana asal zat CO2 yang dihirup oleh karyawan Carrefour tersebut.

"Wah saya nggak tahu, disini saya tugasnya hanya merawat saja," kata suster Eny.


Dari pantauan detikcom, puluhan karyawan Carrefour Ratu Plaza memenuhi ruang gawat darurat RS Pertamina. Bahkan, saking banyaknya, pasien juga dirawat di lorong-lorong rumah sakit. Tampak 2 dokter dibantu belasan suster kerepotan menangani para pasien.

Pihak Carrefour Ratu Plaza sebenarnya ada juga yang mengantarkan karyawan mereka ke RS Pertamina. Namun saat dikonfirmasi detikcom mereka tidak mau berkomentar. Saat hendak diambil gambarnya pun mereka menolak.

Di papan pengumuman yang terpampang didekat UGD, terdaftar sekitar 33 nama karyawan Carrefour Ratu Plaza yang dirawat. Hingga pukul 21.00 WIB, para pasien masih terus berdatangan. Mereka diantar oleh karyawan lain dalam kondisi setengah sadar. Banyak juga keluarga pasien yang menunggu.

I was going to save this for another whinge in wonderment as to why The Point is perservering, but I will type in verbatim how that newspaper covered the above story. Mind you, at least they covered it, unlike The Jakarta Post. However, despite the shit but rather amusing copy, look for the comments by Carrefour's comms manager and then what the hospital prescribed at the end.

Carrefour employees intoxicated by CO

As many as 19 employees, shop attendants, of Carrefour hyper mart in Jl. Sudirman, South Jakarta, were rushed to hospital intoxicated yesterday afternoon after they accidentally inhaled carbon mono-oxide (CO) gas at its basement.

Admitted to state-owned Pertamina Central (RSPP) Hospital's emergency unit sometime after 2p.m. on Tuesday, all of the Carrefour employees were fed intravenously.

"They had to be infused, as the I.V. Would help their bodies clean the CO agent from their blood," explained RSPP director dr. Djoko Sayoto, here yesterday, regarding the conditions of the 19 victims of intoxication.

more of the same etc etc

"Who said they really fainted, they're just tired after taking part in an emergency exercise," said Carrefour corporate communications manager Irawan Kadarman here yesterday.

etc etc

"Who said that?" He must be blind or what!" said Dodi Andika, one of the 19 employees admitted into RSPP, emotionally. "It was purely an incident we had to pay with our lives, almost," he said, adding "all of us really fainted after we accidentally inhaled the CO gas at the basement."

More bad writing about, I think, how electricity went out at 10am and emergency generators activated, causing "air at the basement got thicker and darker."

However, after some five hours being treated at the emergency unit, 16 of the employees were allowed to leave.

"They can go home today after they've given them prescriptions for the gastro-intestine," said hospital spokes person Titi Wahyuni.

And the delightful sidebar to the story in the same paper.

It's the third incident in two years

An announcement tag of "Sorry we're closed" hanged on the entrance gate of Carrefour hyper mart at Jl. Jend. Sudirman here yesterday afternoon, shortly after 19 employees of the mart were rushed to RSPP hospital here, intoxicated.

With at least five 'satpam' (security officers) standing guard in front of the entrance gate, and another platoon at the basement gate, it looked like there were no access for the press to come inside the mart and have a look at where the incident occurred.

"No entrance, we're closed," said one of the officers, his face looking almost furious.

Blah blah etc etc

As the news of the incident spread, Carrefour Corp. Comm. Manager Irawan Kadarman was not available for explanation.

But sometime in the afternoon, Jakarta-based Elshinta radio managed to contact him by phone.

He told the radio the incident occured as some of the employees who participated in an emergency drill on fire prevention PRETENDED to faint.

Strangely enough, the minute he knew his conversation with the radio was aired live, Kadarman cut the phone call off.

Etc etc

bloody amazing reporting. how is it that the better of the Indonesian english speakers cannot see that there is something truly seriously wrong with that copy?!

Quoting: The Point
He told the radio the incident occured as some of the employees who participated in an emergency drill on fire prevention PRETENDED to faint.

Strangely enough, the minute he knew his conversation with the radio was aired live, Kadarman cut the phone call off.

not wishing to defend a running dog of US capitalism, however, mass histeria is fairly common in indonesia. happens quite frequently in factories and schools, where dozens of people (often young females) become suddenly sick (kesurupan) for no apparent reason.

Don't forget Carrefour's outlet in Mangga Dua, where three-year-old Andrew Suoth (nephew of Metro TV presenter Virgier Baker) was crushed to death in April 2007 when shelves stacked with sporting goods/toys collapsed on him.

Many Carrefour outlets are poorly managed, not only in terms of safety but also service. The first DVD player I bought was from Carrefour Harmoni - the sales assistants had no idea about "region codes" - and the supervisor of the electronics area claimed all the LG, Sony and Panasonic players would play only Indonesian-made DVDs and not DVDs made in other countries!

And kudos to the Point for continuing, even without snide pugilistic bule copy editors.

Carbon Monoxide is a scary killer, worldwide, in poorer countries it is possibly the worlds number one killer.

Now the car is running, where did I put that garden hose?

Those were the days. But they weren't all happy days. Like the time Pinky Batesedero puched the finance director and then crashed her motorcycle, or the night I lost all my money to those card sharks on Jaksa and my dad Tom Bosley had to get it back.

Happy days indeed, as Jakarta's ex resident "Fonz" these must be "Fondz" memories!

There are things Lambert does with one hand and his bedroom door closed. But far be it for his house mate to accuse him of spannering one off.
