Unsafe Handling of Materials

In high stress work situations it is important all employees are led by strong and competent leadership. This is especially true when employees are required to work with hazardous materials. In a refinery, when management acts negligently and sanctions the unsafe handling of hazardous materials it is possible that unsuspecting workers will be harmed in a refinery explosion.

While work-related injuries are typically dealt with through the workers’ compensation system, a workplace explosion attributable to exceptional negligence on the part of your employer may warrant a civil lawsuit.
