Gallatin Tennessee Explosion at Hoeganaes Corporation Injures Two

A flash fire at the Hoeganaes Corporation facility in Gallatin, Tennessee has killed one worker and severely injured another. Wiley Sherburne, of Castalian Springs, TN was killed and Vernon Wayne Corley was injured when a flash fire occurred during maintenance on on a burner

The Hoeganaes facility makes liquid metal for gear parts, and was reported to be a dusty facility. Dust in the workplace can, and in this case did, pose a combustion hazard. These types of combustible dust explosions can often cause work injury and lead to Workers Compensation claims. With adequate housekeeping, however, dust explosion like this can be avoided.
