Plant & Refinery Accidents
A Dedicated Personal Injury Lawyer in the Texas Gulf Coast
As a hard-working Texan employed at a refinery or production plant, you
know that your job comes with risks that are present every single day.
Accidents in these environments are common, and often different than those
in other industrial workplaces.
In an attempt to avoid dangerous and costly accidents, the Occupational
Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has implemented thorough and strict
regulations as well as guidelines that refineries and plants must adhere to.
Common Plant & Refinery Accidents
When an accident occurs and the investigators determine that it was a result
of the failure to follow OSHA regulations, the parties responsible should
be held accountable. Since human error or negligence is usually the cause,
most accidents can be avoided.
Chemical plant accidents - Highly combustible chemicals need to be handled with extreme care and
used correctly to avoid preventable accidents. If machines aren't
properly serviced, they may malfunction and lead to dangerous situations.
Chemical spills - After a spill, nearby heat or flames can cause an explosion, harming
many. Accidents at plants and refineries may result in serious injury
that leaves you out of work for an extended period of time.
Oil refinery plant accidents - Overheating the oil is a common cause of refinery accidents. Additionally,
defective, corroded, or malfunctioning equipment may lead to explosions
which frequently lead to fires. Working with highly flammable materials
and not handling them properly around sources of heat can lead to devastating outcomes.
Fertilizer plant accidents - The materials used and stored at fertilizer plants are quite dangerous
and can cause both explosions and fires if not stored properly. Plants
store numerous chemicals and if there is a malfunction or mistake, the
result can leave employees badly injured or dead.
