Chemical plant injuries, processing factory accidents, we do it all.

Industrial accidents happen all the time, unfortunately. There is a very long list of safety measures in place to try and prevent accidents at refineries, chemical plants, and other industrial places of business but, in an instant, things can go very wrong. When there is an incident at a refinery, factory, or other type of industrial plant, you could be looking at a very significant personal injury situation (e.g. Deepwater Horizon).

Injuries and deaths associated with industrial accidents can change the lives of the victims and their families forever.

Industrial Accidents Are Not Uncommon

In 2005, a very significant refinery incident occurred in Texas City, Texas when the BP refinery explosion killed 15 people while injuring 180 others. Despite the presence of a team of professional engineers on-site during one of the plant’s normal transitions, something went wrong, and the resulting disaster will never be forgotten.

In 2019, a series of refinery tanks exploded in Midland, Texas, in a chain reaction that took out at least six tanks. Thankfully, while the physical damage was great, injuries were limited in that case.

On May 6, 2023, a plant fire in Deer Park, Texas that brought so much black smoke to the Houston area it looked like storm clouds had covered the entire city, sent nine workers to the hospital. People working in downtown Houston office buildings were able to see heavy smoke and flames coming from the petrochemical site. Deer Park is dotted with chemical refineries and plants and is no stranger to explosions. There have been several over the years and many of them have been deadly.

Injuries occurring at refineries and industrial sites can be serious, even fatal. If you or a loved one has ever been involved in accidents like these, you should consider seeking legal representation.

Preventing Refinery Explosions

According to Popular Mechanics, many refinery explosions occur during or after spring maintenance. Most refineries shut down for part of the year, and that is when maintenance is performed. When the plant is ready to transition to refining gasoline for the coming season, all of the equipment is turned back on. If an extensive checklist of nearly 30,000 procedures is not followed exactly, then there could be an explosion. The transition period is also the time when all workers are called back to the plant, and that is why the number of dead and injured can sometimes be so high.

The key to good refinery safety is to make sure that those checklists are followed to the letter. Another way to help prevent refinery explosions is to keep a close eye on routine maintenance throughout the plant. One missed maintenance assignment could mean that a problem goes unsolved and an explosion is the result.
