Boiler Explosions Can Cause Serious Injuries
Boiler explosions have the potential to injure anybody around them, and these incidents can even topple buildings. There are various reasons boilers explode, and it is often due to human error. Three of the most common causes of boiler explosions include:
- Design and manufacturer problems. There are times when a boiler has a flawed design or was damaged during the manufacturing process. When this happens, any injured party may have a product liability claim against the company or manufacturer. A design fault could include improper material, poor design structure, improper labeling, lack of safety accessories, etc. Manufacturing defects could include inadequate testing, inadequate inspection, improper assembly, etc.
- Poor management. Improper management of a boiler could include a failure to provide proper training on boiler use, failure to provide necessary water, failure to prevent excessive buildup of pressure, failure to monitor a problem with the boiler, a failure to operate the boiler in a manner directed by the manufacturer, and more.
- Maintenance and repair issues. Boilers must be regularly inspected and maintained as directed by the manufacturer of the device. When companies fail to do so, they could be held liable if the boiler explodes and causes harm.
