Critical Injuries Associated With Gas Explosions

Companies, often times, can overlook precise hazards in the workplace, merely for the goal of increasing profits. Protection of the bottom line within a corporation is usually at the expense of loyal, dedicated employees.

The local community, at times, becomes a participant unwilling in critical accidents that involve natural gas.

More often than not, a gas explosion is caused by negligence by a company or an individual.

Whether the explosion is via propane or natural gas, this type of gas explosion is a result of a gas leak of some type in combination with an ignition spark.

This negligent act could be due to the spark or the leak.

Pipelines, gas tanks, and valves are designed to be leakproof. Thus, if a gas leak is the result of an explosion, the probability is high that negligence has occurred somewhere.

Faulty manufacturing, design, inspection, insulation, and improper maintenance or repair are examples of a negligent act.
