Take Care of Safety, Chemical Industry Warned

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has stated that the chemical industry needs to take safety issues seriously. This warning follows an incident at the Warwick International Group operation in Mostyn Flintshire where an explosion caused untold damage.

The company was forced to cough up a total of Ģ34,500 in fines even though nobody was injured or killed. The fines were levied under section 2(1) of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974.

"This incident was entirely foreseeable and avoidable, and it is extremely lucky that no-one was hurt as a result," said Jo-Anne Michael, the investigating inspector.
