Explosions at work claims
It is essential that employers make sure that their employees are protected from the risk of explosions at work, which can result in injury and prolonged pain and in the most severe cases even death.
Explosions at work can occur for a variety of reasons, whether it's as part of a military expedition, a chemical handling accident or a worker investigating a gas leak. An explosion can cause both minor and major injuries, with potentially lasting effects physical and/or psychological effects.
When adequate protection is not provided by an employer, the risk of injury is increased. Many accidents can result in particularly painful injuries, especially if the explosion involves shrapnel or hot substances which can then lead to further injuries.
