Experienced Pennsylvania Explosion Accident Attorneys
We rely on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for accurate workplace accident statistics.

The number of workers killed and injured is certainly troubling, but it becomes egregious when victims and their families find out that most of these explosion accidents were preventable if proper safety measures had been in place.

But when these regulations are not followed and enforced, workers are unnecessarily put at risk for explosion accident injuries such as these:
