Fire And Explosion Injuries

Tennessee Fire And Explosion Injury Attorney

Certain industries put workers at greater risk of burn injuries than others. Industrial explosions, boiler room explosions and hot tar burns are examples of accidents leading to burns. The severity of a burn injury will determine the length of time needed for healing as well as the likelihood that disfigurement by scarring will occur.

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) specifies that employers should have fire prevention plans in place, including

  • A list of all major fire hazards, as well as proper handling and storage procedures for them
  • Procedures to control accumulation of flammable waste
  • Procedures for preventing accidental ignition of combustible materials

OSHA also issues guidelines for controlling and combating workplace hazards that can lead to explosions due to the presence of:

  • Flammable gases or vapor
  • Flammable liquids
  • Combustible dusts
  • Ignitable fibers or flyings

Certain types of workplaces are recognized by OSHA as more hazardous than others — more at risk of fires and explosions, including:

  • Petroleum refineries
  • Dry cleaning plants
  • Aircraft hangars
  • Utility gas plants
  • Grain elevators
  • Producers of plastics, medicines and fireworks
  • Coal preparation plants
  • Textile mills
  • Plants that pulverize wood and create sawdust
