This kind of negligence may be due to:

  • Unsafe handling of chemicals
  • Inadequate training of employees
  • Defective products or use of worn-out tools or equipment
  • Negligent third-party contractors or subcontractors
  • Violations of safety codes or OSHA regulations
  • Lack of safety and warning signs
  • Improper use of natural gas, benzene or other flammable products
