Refinery Accident Causes Burn Injuries for Workers in Delaware City

Refinery Accident Causes Burn Injuries for Workers in Delaware CityOn Tuesday morning, a refinery accident caused various burn injuries for three refinery workers in Delaware City, Delaware. The explosion occurred around 11:30 am at the refinery, leaving one worker with serious burn injuries to the face and arms, and another worker with severe facial and neck burns. A third worker burned his feet during the refinery accident. All injured parties went to the hospital for medical treatment, and two workers remain in critical condition.

Employees at refineries may be more at risk for developing injuries due to the danger inherent at these types of facilities. In some cases, proper safeguards or routine maintenance may be lacking at the facility that may lead to injuries and even fatalities for employees. Burn injuries may range from minor to severe and could result in permanent disfigurement or other life-changing health issues.
