As the supplier of contract labor, the client was being held responsible for the operation and safety of a chemical plant in which there was an explosion and several fatalities.
Utilizing our partners’ detailed knowledge of the process chemistry and 25 years of chemical plant operation and management experience we were able to establish through deposition testimony, documents, and the labor contact, that actual operational control of the plant was exercised by the owner. Having operational control meant that the owner made all decisions regarding plant operation, maintenance, and safety.
It is expected that if the case were settled out of court, a settlement favorable to our client, the contractor, would result. If it were to go to trial, our client’s liabilities would be greatly reduced.
Our mission is to help you protect your people, your plant, your profits, and our planet. To learn more about how we can help you manage risk, call us at 1-844-ioMosaic.
