Building Code Violations

When working in a refinery, employees typically expect higher standards for safety and site maintenance. Working with volatile substances requires these heightened precautions. Sadly, the companies that own and operate refineries are occasionally too focused on the bottom line and fail to ensure that they provide a facility that is safe for workers. One particularly hazardous situation is one in which there are building code violations, making the workspace and environment structurally or practically unsafe.

Causes of Building Code Violations

Building codes exist for the sole purpose of protecting the safety of a building’s occupants. In some areas, this entails certain prescriptions for earthquake resistance, and in others it may involve extra reinforcement to prevent a collapse due to high winds. Building code violations may be the result of:

  • Lack of managerial oversight
  • Site manager negligence
  • Improperly allocated funding
  • The hiring of unqualified builders and contractors
  • Inadequate repair and maintenance
