There will always be a great danger of explosions at manufacturers of aerosol products in Colorado and other states. A devastating explosion at such a plant rocked a city in a neighboring state on a recent Tuesday shortly after 6 a.m. Residents in the area and workers at the facility were in great danger, but miraculously, only one employee needed medical treatment for the injuries he suffered.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration launched an investigation to determine the cause of the explosion. Investigators will also look at the company's compliance with health and safety regulations. Employers in all industries are responsible for providing workplace environments that do not threaten the safety and health of employees.
