Explosions, especially those on industrial work sites, can usually be traced back to negligence. When many independent companies are delivering, storing, or using flammable liquids at a work site, there is a huge potential for an injury-causing explosion.
- At an oil refinery, flammable liquids are transported in, stored, and transferred out. Each transfer must adhere to strict safety standards to prevent explosions.
- Utilities use flammable fuels to produce electricity. If the processes and systems are not properly managed, life-threatening explosions can result.
- Propane tanks that are used to heat rural homes can be dangerous when refilling and reconnect processes are not properly done. Such explosions put the home and its residents at risk for burn injuries.
- A punctured car or truck gasoline tank can suddenly explode making a serious auto accident even worse. Whether after an accident or as a result of leaking flammable fluids, car fires can cause serious burn injuries and wrongful death.
