There was an explosion at the Poet Ethanol Plant in Shell Rock, Iowa on November 24, 2023.  It is believed the explosion was caused by dust at the plant.  It is unclear if any workers were injured as a result of the incident.

There have been a number of incidents at industrial and manufacturing plants.  A contractor was killed after being electrocuted in an AT&T building in Cambridge, Massachusetts on November 7, 2023.  There was a fire at the Sound Resource Solutions chemical facility in Shepherd, Texas on November 8, 2023.  A fire broke out at the Lion Elastomers Plant in Port Neches, Texas on November 15, 2023.  There was an explosion at the Hound Resources Petroleum Refinery in White Lake Township, Michigan on November 24, 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.
