Nope, no need for regulations here. Nope, not at all. Don't want to stop creating jobs. Every worker killed in this unsafe environment means an open job for someone who is unemployed.

Another example how it is just "too expensive" to institute regulations requiring filters/equipment/procedures for safety.......those poor corporations won't make nearly the profits if they have to factor in additional safety. Surely those lives are worth more than that corporations' profits......

The article fails to mention , that workers failed to follow proper protocol in purging combustible vapor and dust. Anyone who deals with sugar should know this . i know this from a childhood tour of domino sugar in NYC. the same goes with most metals, corn and textiles.

Workers generally follow policies and procedures put in place by ownership/management.

If only they had thought to stop breathing before heading to work none of this would have happened.

They don't worry about losing people. People can be replaced. It's the thought that one of their almighty dollars going to someone else that really hurts.

Lest we forget, when the GOP takes over, they will eliminate all regulations. They will also shut down the OSHA. I can't help wondering how many workers are going to die after the GOP takes over.

It is part of their "create jobs" program, I guess.

The article mentions explosions in two plants- in TN and GA both in "right to work" anti-union states. Try again.

The problem with these accidents is that they could have been avoided by hiring college educated, knowledgeable, and competent on-site supervisors. Uneducated bureaucrats turn to these people to write their laws, but business managers should disdain human and capital business losses. Businesses should hire competent management, instead of hiring by nepotism, and incept programs to prevent accidents on their own-After all, its their business.

Sorry, heikhali, but the real reasons for these accidents isn't nepotism or uneducated management, it is lack of safety regulations or regulations not being followed due to costs.

Hell, most don't care about people losing their lives or being maimed. But lets talk about machinery and or plant damage as well as lost production. This will get business to do something about the problem.
