Industrial Explosion Causes Work Injury

An explosion at an industrial facility in Gurnee, Ill., as caused one work injury. An electrical box outside a storage faciity exploded, throwing a sub-contractor back into a chain link fence, causing injuries to the man’s wrists and legs. Authorities believe there may have been a small hydrogen leak which caused the explosion.

Anytime there is an industrial accident like this, the injuries are both physical and mental. Workers who have experienced something like a workplace fire or explosion usually suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and often cannot return to work in the industrial setting. Because workers in industry can have a high rate of pay, the lost earnings incurred as a result of a work injury might be in the millions of dollars.
