Industrial plants are full of hazards and can be dangerous. Plant and refinery workers work in dangerous environments. In addition to long work hours, they’re exposed to heavy machinery, hazardous chemicals, and aging equipment. Every year, thousands of plant and refinery workers are seriously injured. Some are even killed. Employers are required to provide their employees with a reasonably safe place to work. When employers fail in their duty, workers often pay the physical, emotional, and financial price.
