Causes of Chemical Explosions

Chemical containers are designed with many safety features to help prevent the chance of a chemical explosion and are usually effective. Though it is possible that a container may fail, the most likely cause of a chemical explosion is human error and negligence.

Chemical explosions are relatively rare occurrences, since chemical plants go to great lengths to ensure the safety of their workers and surrounding individuals. However, the following actions may lead to a chemical explosion regardless of the safety measures in place:

  • Dangerous chemical reactions
  • Smoking near dangerous chemicals
  • Improperly maintained boilers
  • Equipment malfunction

In many cases, these actions are the result of negligence because someone failed to carry out his or her responsibilities or otherwise acted recklessly.
