Common Types of Refinery and Plant Explosion Injuries
- Primary blast- the pressure that is released from an explosion causes these severe injuries. Affected areas generally are the ears, lungs, and gastrointestinal organs. This is caused because these organs are easily filled with air.
- Secondary injuries- occur from flying or falling objects that hit employees after a plant explosion. This could include equipment, glass, or debris that is hurled at the plant worker. These injuries can cause impact damage or even be embedded in the plant workers body.
- Tertiary blast- these injuries are caused when the explosion lifts a person up and propels them into an object. The impact of the body hitting a stationary object with such force can cause fractures and even internal organ injuries.
- Quaternary explosion injuries- all other injuries such as burns, crush injuries and chemical exposure are under this label. This includes inhalation of fumes, chemical burns, and loss of blood from injuries.
