Explosion Injuries

Were You Seriously Injured In An Explosion?

Workplace explosions are terrifying, and worryingly, increasingly common incidents, partially due to the rapidly and perpetually expanding industrial sector in the United States. This growth has obvious value, but cannot come without proper safety measures and precautions needed to keep workers safe. These types of incidents often leave victims with life-changing and potentially permanent injuries, and are frequently caused by someone’s actions, or lack thereof. If you were seriously injured by an explosion in your workplace, you may be able to take legal action.

How Do Explosions Happen?

There are a variety of reasons why an explosion can occur at the workplace, including outright wrongdoing, overlooking safety risks, neglecting security protocols, and more.

Some common causes include:

  • Human Error: It doesn’t take much to cause a catastrophic accident, it just takes moving the wrong part, ignoring a potential hazard, or any number of other potential causes. While eliminating all human error is next to impossible, the risks can be significantly mitigated with proper safety training.
  • Smoking: On top of the myriad of health issues smoking tobacco can cause, cigarette butts that aren’t properly disposed of can cause serious issues that take far less time to occur. Whether the designated smoking area was too close to hazardous material or if the smoldering butt was disposed in a dangerous location, it only takes a single stray ember to start a fire.
  • Airborne Particle Buildup: Without proper ventilation, particles from metal, plastic, wood, grain, etc. can quickly build up to dangerous levels. Once the concentration of airborne particles builds up to a high enough level, it only takes a single spark to cause a massive explosion and set the entire area on fire.
  • Overloaded Electrical Sockets: Plugging too many appliances into a single power source can cause it to overheat, even if everything is otherwise in perfect working order. According to basic safety standards, a single socket can only handle up to 3000 watts of 13amps. Any more is a potentially deadly safety hazard.
  • Faulty Wiring and Electrical Equipment: Loose cables and damaged plugs are among the most common causes of explosions in the workplace. This equipment needs to be repaired or replaces as soon as possible to prevent any incidents from occurring, and all electrical equipment heeds to receive regular checks to ensure that there are no issues.
