OSHA to Investigate Deadly Explosions January 20, 2014

Two people are confirmed dead after a possible explosion and partial building collapse on January 20, 2014 at an animal feed processing plant in Omaha, Nebraska.  38 others are injured. As of yet there is no news on what may have caused the explosion and subsequent collapse.In an unrelated incident later the same day, two others died in Madill, Oklahoma after an electric arc furnace exploded at Mid American Steel and Wire steel plant. One worker was injured and suffered burns to the back of his head.OSHA will be investigating both accidents to find out if any standards or regulations were violated. The investigations will include interviews of witnesses, employees and a look into the history of the company to find out whether any violations occurred in the past. The investigations could take as much as six months.The tragic loss suffered at both accident sites has deeply impacted many people. Our hearts go out to all of the victims and their families of the International Nutrition Plant and Mid American Steel and Wire at this most difficult time.
