There have been a number of incidents at industrial and manufacturing plants.  There was a chemical release at the Marathon Galveston Bay Refinery in Texas City, Texas on June 27, 2023.  There was a deadly grain elevator collapse in Tynan, Texas on July 4, 2023.  There was a pipeline explosion and fire outside the INEOS Chocolate Bayou facility in Brazoria County, Texas on July 13, 2023.

Refineries and industrial facilities can pose significant dangers both to workers and to the general public.  When dangerous work is involved, extra precautions must be taken, especially when fires and explosions can occur.  Equipment must be properly inspected and maintained to ensure that accidents do not occur and that hardworking Americans are not hurt.
