4. Definition of Industrial Disaster:

Actually there is no proper  definition of Industrial Disaster.

But, your project will look incomplete if the definition of Industrial disaster is missing.

So, don’t forget to include the definition.

Industrial Disaster can be defined as

“accidents or disasters which mainly occur in an industry due to

  • technical failure,
  • carelessness,
  • negligence or
  • irresponsible handling of hazardous material at work place.”

Moreover, It can also be defined as

This is the most important part of your project.

Industrial accidents are very common.

It may happen to anybody, anywhere and anytime in the industry.

In  United .States (US). Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), looks after the safety of 130 million workers every year.

However, despite the agency’s efforts, industrial accidents are fairly common.

In 2013, over 4405 workers died on the job.

Let’s see some of the most common type of Industrial accidents.

i) Slips and Falls:

It is One of the most common type of accident in an industry.

Workers have to move with or carry heavy loads from one place to another.

Due to oil spill on the way or wet staircases the workers slip and injure themselves.

Sometimes, due to lack of training or lack of non-slip foot-ware is also the cause of injury.

ii) From falling objects:

In many industries, workers and engineers have to work at a great height and handle heavy machines.

There is always a possibility of falling objects.

Sometimes, the objects are not placed properly  or placed on high shelves can also be a cause of severe injury.

So, falling objects from a great height can also injure or lead to casualty.

iii) Pipe Burst:

Pipelines are commonly used in industries to transport liquid and gas.

Moreover, It is fast, cheap and easiest mode of transport.

But, sometimes due to poor maintenance, or high pressure, it bursts.

Seeping of poisonous gas into the air, kills many people working in the industry and nearby areas.

Therefore, chemical explosion due to reaction causes serious industrial disasters.
