The Dangers of Chemical Plants
Whether you work in a plant or live near a chemical manufacturing facility, you could be at risk of serious injury if the plant should have an accident. Each year there are numerous reports of plant accidents, malfunctions, and explosions, which can cause serious injuries or even death.
Common chemical plant accidents include:
- Chemical spills
- Electrical fires
- Chemical fires
- Chemical explosions
Although chemical plants and refineries are subject to strict safety requirements by both the state and federal government, disasters continue to occur.
Accidents at chemical plants may be caused by the following:
- Malfunctioning or poorly maintained alarm system
- Poor ventilation
- Inadequately contained chemicals, especially flammable liquids
- Failure to maintain equipment and machinery
- Improper or lack of safety procedure training
- Unsafe design of the plant itself or containment vessels
- Violations of state or federal requirements
