11 suffer workplace injury in refinery blast

While many people in North Carolina work at jobs with the potential for danger, most are confident in the mechanisms and procedures in place to prevent a major incident from happening. Despite these safety measures, a workplace accident -- as well as a workplace injury -- can still occur. In fact, 11 workers in another state were recently injured.

People in the United States enjoy a way of life that may seem to be foreign to others living in other areas of the country. While water flowing directly into houses through pipes may seem to be a requirement of everyday life, many people take it for granted until a water leak, for example, occurs resulting in the water being shut off. Unfortunately, many people in North Carolina also take for granted the effort that utility workers must go to and the potential for a workplace injury that they may face in maintaining water lines, for example.
