Tough Attorney for Victims in Plant / Refinery Explosions
Oil refinery plants process crude oil for use in petroleum products including oil for household heating, as well as gasoline. These refineries are massive, with miles of pipework and serious equipment. Other examples of industrial plants include fertilizer plants, where fires and explosions are also not uncommon due to the nature of operations. Sadly, accidents can and do occur on these worksites—and when they do, they are often devastating.
Why Do Industrial Accidents Happen?
Some of the most common reasons for explosions and other accidents in oil refineries and other industrial sites include:
- Defective materials and products
- Inadequate training for employees
- Insufficient supervision of employees
- Unsafe work environments
- Failure to provide sufficient maintenance and care
The one thing all these factors have in common? They are preventable. The vast majority of workplace accidents simply do not have to occur. If supervisors, managers, and employees were responsible and followed regulations, injuries could be avoided and lives could be saved.
When worksites are not safe—when managers don’t follow regulations, supervisors don’t make sure equipment is well-maintained and managed, and fellow workers fail to do their part in creating a safe work environment—accidents can and do occur. Plants and refineries are among the most dangerous job sites in the United States. Industrial accidents, including explosions, are all too common.
OSHA Violations & Industrial Explosions
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued guidelines to protect workers. For example, OSHA requires industrial equipment to receive highly specific and careful maintenance as well as regular inspections. On occasion, these guidelines are not followed. OSHA violations play a large role in causing accidents and injuries in industrial sites across America. These violations contribute to a sobering statistic: The United States is the worldwide leader in deaths caused by plant explosions.
