Chemical Burns, Explosions And Electrocution Accidents

When explosions and fires occur on construction sites and in warehouses and other industrial buildings, they may often result in catastrophic and sometimes fatal injuries to workers and others on the property. In some cases, these accidents are the result of negligence, including defective machinery and the failure to properly store and use hazardous chemicals. Property owners and contractors have a responsibility to follow important federal and state safety regulations to protect their workers.
