Plants and refineries are among the most dangerous workplaces to be employed in Louisiana, which makes it even more critical that employers strictly follow OSHA guidelines and industry regulations. Should your employers cut corners on safety to increase profits, they can put your life at risk.

Common Reasons Behind Accidents
Accidents at plants, factories and refineries may vary in the extent of the damage; however, there are often common reasons that these types of catastrophic accidents occur. Refinery or plant incidents are frequently caused by:
- A failure to replace or repair outdated or old equipment
- Poor contractor or employee training
- Limited enforcement of safety procedures
- Shoddy facility maintenance
- Hazardous working environment
- Employees working unusual or extended shifts with inadequate downtime
Employees can only do so much to maintain safe working conditions. It is up to supervisors and employers to take steps to do the same.
