Workers deserve a safe workplace
Work in an industrial setting comes with numerous inherent dangers. However, it’s up to supervisors and employers to make sure workers are as safe as possible and to take the steps necessary to avoid major accidents. If you’ve been injured on the job, you may have grounds for a negligence lawsuit against your employer or a third-party.
Chemical plants remain one of the most dangerous places to work. Explosions at these facilities are alarmingly common and pose huge risks to workers and those in the surrounding area, often causing injuries and death.
Common causes of plant explosions
Chemical plant and refinery explosions can occur for any number of reasons. When an explosion occurs at a plant, workers may suffer serious injuries or even be killed. Injuries typical of these types of accidents include third-degree chemical burns and smoke inhalation. Some of the common causes of chemical plant explosions include:
- Natural disasters
- Inexperienced employees
- Machine malfunctions
