The importance of workplace safety training continually gets reaffirmed by unfortunate workplace accidents. Accidents happen day-in and day-out, but knowing how to prevent and react to them helps prevent injuries, or worse, fatalities. This notion was unfortunately reiterated by the recent explosions at a Florida propane plant.
The Blue Rhino propane plant, located in Tavares, Florida, experienced an alarming cycle of propane cylinders explode at their plant this past Tuesday. Federal and state investigators are still not sure what caused the chain of explosions, but know that there have, thankfully, been no fatalities. This article further explains the event and investigation at the plant. We wish the best to the injured and their families at the Blue Rhino propane plant!
Though we are not sure what happened yet at the plant, we do know that accidents can and will happen at any workplace. It is the preventative actions and response to the situations that control the well-being of everyone involved.
