OSHA urges increased safety awareness in fireworks industry in advance of July 4 celebrations
Washington state occupational safety and health officials are investigating an explosion that occurred last week at a fireworks facility, killing one worker and injuring two more. In another recent incident, a worker suffered fatal burns caused by an explosion at a fireworks facility. OSHA cited the company more than $45,000 for safety violations relating to explosive hazards.
OSHA is urging the fireworks and pyrotechnics industry to be vigilant in protecting workers from hazards while manufacturing, storing, transporting, displaying and selling fireworks for public events. For information on addressing common hazards in retail sales of fireworks and fireworks displays, including downloadable safety posters and a video, visit OSHA's Pyrotechnics Industry Web page.
