Petrochemical Industry Accidents
Houston, Texas City, Deer Park, Pasadena, Baytown, Beaumont
Houston is home to the petrochemical industry in the United States. Many petrochemical companies are based here, and many more have operations in the region. While this concentration is good for Houston's economy, it also has a downside; there are far more petrochemical accident injuries and deaths in local plants than anywhere else.
Causes of Petrochemical Plant Accidents
One reason for this is the age of many petrochemical plants. They require expensive maintenance that corporations focused on the bottom line will not likely perform. Another reason is negligence and misconduct on the part of employees, supervisors, and contractors. Both of these causes can result in catastrophic accidents.
