Workers Deserve Better Protection

Workers may be at the bottom of the company food chain. But, without them, it is impossible for a company to still continue its operation and cater to the needs of their consumers.

Because of this, it is important to provide them protection from workplace accidents.

A recent accident in Orange County involved the death of two victims and injury to others as they were working on their night shift when an electric water heater exploded in a plastic factory.

Aside from the two deaths in Solus Industrial Innovations, two workers sustained minor injuries while two others refused to be administered with medical treatment. The blast has caused great deal of damage.

Reports indicate that the blast was felt and heard by firefighters in the nearby fire station although there was no fire resulted from it.

Though the company expressed their remorse towards the incident and promised help to victims of the explosion, one may still think that there should have been extra caution on the part of the company that could have prevented the accident.
