Why Do Industrial Accidents Occur?
Industrial sites such as refinery plants contain miles of pipework and house dangerous machinery that can cause serious accidents. While there are safety laws that regulate these work sites, accidents are far too common - and for reasons that are often preventable.
Most common causes of industrial accidents are:
- Defective machinery
- Faulty work equipment
- Poor training of employees and machine operators
- Lack of supervision
- Dangerous work environments and compliance with safety standards
- Lack of maintenance
Explosions, toxic exposures, and crush injuries are examples of common injuries of industrial workers. The reality is that many industrial site accidents do not have to occur if supervisors and workers followed the strict safety regulations put in place by the government.
OSHA Violations in Industrial Explosion Cases
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a federal agency that is responsible for issuing safety guidelines that protect workers from accidents and harm in the workplace.
The OSHA has many strict requirements for workplaces, including:
- Regular maintenance and inspection of industrial equipment
- Standards for training employee on operating equipment
- Protection for workers (face, eye, head protections)
- Protocol for communicating hazards
We find that in some industrial accident cases, there were clear patterns of OSHA violations. This is an unfortunate trend that plagues industrial workplaces nationwide, and the United States is no exception.
