Three Year Anniversary of Imperial Sugar Explosion Marked by Service

February 7 marks the three year anniversary of the Imperial Sugar Refinery explosion, which caused 8 deaths and numerous Georgia work injury claims to be filed. The Flynn Law Firm represents 6 workers injured in the blast. The explosion was caused by excess sugar dust in a conveyor running under the silos at the refinery. Secondary explosions were then caused by the huge amount of sugar all over the facility. After the explosion, OSHA implemented standards on combustible dust, and specifically mandate that 1/32″ of sugar may be allowed to accumulate on surface areas. Work injury lawyers represented several claimants who were injured in the explosion.

The Imperial refinery had piles of sugar several feet tall, which created the dangerous conditions at the Port Wentworth facility. A large number of Georgia workers compensation claims and third-party claims were filed as a result of the explosion.
