Explosions often lead to catastrophic injuries for victims. While there are times when explosions cannot be prevented, it is often the case that there is a human error behind these incidents. One of those errors is the lack of training provided by employers.

Explosions in industrial settings are often devastating and cause many catastrophic injuries. Any time employees are required to operate around dangerous materials or equipment that could cause an explosion, they must be properly trained.
The National Transportation Safety Board released a report late in 2019 stating that a lack of training by a pipefitting crew in Minneapolis in 2017 led to the death of two people and injured nine more at a private Christian school. The NTSB says that workers for a natural gas supplier mistakenly believed a key valve was closed before they began disassembling the gas installation.
This is just one of hundreds of examples each year of how a lack of training can lead to catastrophic explosions. Workers in nearly all industries operate around some type of explosive material. It is vital that employers properly train and regularly update training regarding the operation of explosive materials.
