Trash Truck Explosion in Wilmington Injures Two Workers

Trash Truck Explosion in Wilmington Injures Two WorkersA trash truck explosion that occurred in Wilmington, Delaware injured two sanitation workers. Around 7 am, on Thursday morning, the work accident took place when the workers were loading garbage into the truck’s compressor. The compressor crushed a tank, which caused the first worker to sustain critical chest injuries. The other worker incurred minor injuries. Both workers went to local hospitals for medical treatment.

Unexpected accidents may occur in a variety of industries although some workplaces may naturally contain more hazards due to the types of work being accomplished. Unfortunately, in some cases, the work environment may contain preventable dangers such as faulty equipment or a lack of safeguards to protect workers from injuries. When that is the case, employees may develop serious injuries or even fatalities for which the employer may be liable.
