Dangerous Occupations and Accidents Causing Explosions and Fires
Explosions and fires are common in:
- Construction accidents
- Defective products
- Faulty fuel systems
- Industrial equipment and large machinery accidents
- Natural gas accidents
- Oil refinery accidents
- Trucking accidents
In addition to burn injuries, explosions and fires can cause inhalation injuries, lung damage, loss of sight or hearing, cardiac or respiratory arrest, shock wave injuries, brain injuries and wrongful death.
Electrical Accidents and Electrocution
Electrical accidents can cause electric shock injuries, burns or death by electrocution. The most common causes of electrical accidents include:
- Contact with power lines
- Improper use of extension cords
- No electrical safety guards on tools and machines
- No ground-fault protection
- Using tools, products or equipment incorrectly
- Wear and tear or other damage to electrical cords
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), during a hand-to-foot shock lasting one second, electrocution is likely when the current level is above 100 amperes. When the current is 2,000 amperes or greater, the risk for death increases.
