What Are the Common Causes of Industrial Explosions?
Too often, negligence is to blame for an industrial explosion and lives are needlessly lost. The injuries sustained by those who survive these catastrophic accidents may include chemical and/or thermal burns, disfigurement, and temporary or permanent disabilities.
Some of the most common causes of explosions include:
- Inadequate employee safety training
- Unsafe conditions, such as built-up air pressure
- Defective products or equipment
- Mishandling flammable materials or liquids
- Presence of volatile gases
- Improper employee supervision
