Fluor Accident Lawyers

Fighting for Plant, Refinery & Construction Accident Survivors Across the U.S.

Fluor Corporation is a global engineering and construction firm that provides services in industrial infrastructure, government and power, and oil and gas. Founded in 1912 and headquartered in Irving, Texas, Fluor has offices in 25 countries and is one of the largest global engineering companies in the world. Its operations are located near large oil reservoirs and natural resource deposits in the United States, Middle East, Australia, and Canada. In 2018, Fluor earned $19.16 billion in revenue for its work designing power plants, environmental control products, and project management services. Fluor and its subsidiaries employ about 53,000 people.

As an employee at any plant, refinery, or other industrial worksite, you have the right to expect that your work environment will be reasonably safe. You may work around flammable substances and with heavy machinery, but this is no excuse for industrial accidents and injuries that happen because safety standards are overlooked, workers are not properly trained, or equipment is poorly maintained. Companies like Fluor must focus on worker safety. When they don’t, they should be held accountable.

Find out more about your rights after a construction, refinery, or plant accident by calling (888) 493-1629. Your consultation with a Fluor accident attorney is free and private.

Fluor Incident History

Environmental Violation at the Plutonium Finishing Plant

In 2005, Fluor was fined $206,250 by the U.S. Department of Energy for violations of the department’s nuclear safety requirements. The fine was for a series of violations involving nuclear waste that occurred over a 2-year period between 2003 and 2005 at the Plutonium Finishing Plant in Washington. In its notice to Fluor of the proposed civil penalty, the Department of Energy cited two specific incidents involving low level radioactive exposure of several workers and the airborne release of radiological material at the facility’s K-Basins, which were used to store spent nuclear reactor fuel.

Chemical Plant Explosion in Southern Mexico

In 2016, a Fluor chemical plant in Southern Mexico exploded, claiming 32 lives and injuring 100. The Petroquímica Mexicana de Vinilo explosion occurred because of harmful gases such as chlorine and ethanol leaking from tanks and pipes in the plant. According to a complaint filed survivors and the families of those killed in the explosion, Flour knew the plant was leaking. The company acknowledged the explosion as one of the worst in their company’s history.

Fluor Agrees to $1.1 Million Settlement for False Claims Act Violation

In 2013, Fluor Hanford agreed to pay $1.1 million to the Justice Department to settle allegations that the company had used federal funds to lobby for more government customers, which is a violation of the False Claims Act. According to the Justice Department, Fluor used money that had been allocated to training first responders and law enforcement personnel on homeland security and emergency response measures to lobby for additional funding. The whistleblower who filed the lawsuit, a former Fluor employee, received $200,000 of the settlement.
