Safety Lapses Contributed to Exxon Refinery Explosion

A report has just been issued concerning last year's refinery explosion at an ExxonMobil plant in Redondo Beach, California.  According to findings, the explosion occurred after crews were repairing a unit that hadn't been maintained for over five years.  During the repair, the unit leaked hydrocarbons into another part of the refinery.  This caused a spark, and the eventual explosion. 

Several Changes to California Workers' Compensation Laws for 2016

California laws require employers carry workers compensation insurance and/or to be permissibly self-insured. Generally, following a workplace injury, workers are entitled to receive compensation benefits without having to show fault on the part of their employer and regardless of their own fault. The types of benefits to which an injured worker may be entitled include medical treatment, temporary and permanent disability benefits, and a job displacement voucher. In the event that a death occurs, the family members of a deceased worker may be able to recover certain costs, such as funeral expenses and a death benefit.
