Recent months are showing that workers, and the surrounding communities, of the industrial sites are far from being safe from harm. Over the last few months there have been a number of industrial accidents across the country, many of which have resulted in the loss of life for both workers and people living in the nearby areas. However, here in the state of Louisiana, there have been a handful of accidents as well including fires and explosions at industrial workplaces.

According to the Louisiana Environmental Action Network (LEAN) the state is not doing enough to protect the people and environment from accidents that may cause them harm. There are a number of communities in which people in residential areas are surrounded by industrial plants such as oil refineries or chemical plants. Fortunately, the industrial sites have not only the incentive of maintain a safe environment for the people for their sake, but there is also great financial incentive as well to have an obligation to the public.

Due to the industrial base of the state, it is the responsibility of the companies to ensure that their communities and the environment area protected from harm. At this time, the many companies in the state have acknowledged the disasters that have recently occurred and they have agreed to investigate their own sites in order to take action and prevent another incident similar to it from occurring.

Despite the efforts of the companies, workers and the communities may still be placed at risk due to these very dangerous plants.
