Oklahoma Explosion Injures Two

Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC || 2-Jan-2017

An explosion at an aerospace company in Cleveland, Oklahoma has left two employees wounded. Emergency crews responded to the ICES Corporation, where they manufacture custom aircraft parts, around 2 p.m. The details of the injuries to the two employees are unknown, but the building is expected to be a total loss after. Police reported that likely cause resulted from a floor buffer sparking and then burning the chemicals used to clean the floors. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration and police are investigating the explosion.

There were 2.9 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses reported last year. This is alarming and scary for those in the workforce. Companies are responsible for keeping their employees safe and providing a safe and reliable workplace. All employers should provide safety training to their employees as well as maintenance checks on all equipment. They are also responsible for addressing any safety concerns that employees may have. These concerns can turn into workplace accidents if not addressed promptly. An experienced attorney will investigate your accident and determine if you can pursue legal action for compensation.
