The cause of fatalities in refinery explosions over the past 50 years has always been a lack of safety procedures and/or negligence on the company or management’s part. It’s no surprise that work in petroleum and other chemical refineries is dangerous because of the volatile substances in that environment. It is surprising that there are not more strict safety policies and procedures in place at all plants and refineries to adhere to the OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) guidelines for a safe work environment. It is unfathomable that these lives could be saved if there was a greater focus on safety.

The most recent fatal incident in Texas was the 2005 BP refinery explosion in Texas City. It was determined by the CSB (Chemical Safety Board) that there were numerous

safety violations and poor judgment from the management regarding the contract workers in the area of the faulty equipment. There had been numerous safety citations from OSHA at this plant in recent years, and several of these citations were not corrected. The CSB investigation revealed that the workers would not have been killed even if the explosion still occurred if the management had exercised better judgment about the placement of temporary trailers the workers were based out of while working at the plant. In addition, it was determined that the management should have cleared the area the workers were in at the time of the risky start up of equipment that was taking place after a maintenance shut down. This is one of the worst, fatal incidents and a local example of the negligence surrounding these tragedies.
