2 workers at California school injured in natural gas explosion

California Company Cited In Fatal Workplace Accident

Recent news reports that California's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal/OSHA) has cited a fuel distribution company following a fatal workplace accident in Corona.  According to the report, one worker was killed and another suffered severe burns when a 9,000-gallon tanker truck exploded.  Cal/OSHA determined the company that employed the workers to perform welding operations on the truck failed to follow proper safety procedures, and this failure contributed to the incident.  CalOSHA also found that the employer did not provide adequate training to its employees concerning the potential damages of working near combustible materials. Cal/OSHA had cited the Southern California company previously for similar incidents.
