I'm on vacation, but I'm not dead... This was in The Scotsman today. The explosion that destroyed the ICL plastics plant in Glasgow Scotland on 11 May 2004 was caused by an LPG line that leaked into a basement that was being used as a storage locker by a contractor, who was killed along with several other workers when he went into the basement and flipped on the light. The son of then-ICL Tech managing director, Frank Stott, was hired as a co-op student for a holiday job, and given the responsibility of inspecting the pipeline. The HSE (UK Health and Safety Executive-- similar to OSHA in the USA) had told ICL that it was not essential that they replace the pipeline, which was installed without any corrosion protection. Just when are we going to get our act together and stop killing people?
