INEOS Chemical Plant Accidents & Injuries
The people who work at chemical plants face hazards every day, working with heavy equipment, complex machinery, and volatile substances. Companies like INEOS are obligated to implement proper safety measures to protect workers from undue harm. They must follow all applicable state and federal regulations related to workplace safety and environmental protection, but this does not always happen. When they are more interested in keeping up production and put safety on the backburner, workers can be seriously injured or killed.
