Potential Causes For Plant And Refinery Explosions
Several things can happen to cause a plant and refinery explosion. Explosions may be due to the negligence of an individual or organization, or they may simply be an accident. Such causes may include:
- Unchecked safety regulations or failure to adhere to OSHA standards
- Poor machinery maintenance or improper use of machinery
- Use of bad chemicals
- Faulty equipment
- Ignored or unaddressed corrosion
- Improperly trained workers operating equipment without necessary procedure knowledge
Entire communities can suffer from these explosions. Companies have a responsibility to take the proper precautions and keep those around them safe from harm. Pursuing compensation is about more than just making up for losses, it is about righting wrongs done to you through someone else’s negligence.
