Deadly Contract: Explosion While Disposing of Fireworks
A massive, deadly explosion at a Hawaiian company awarded the federal contract for disposing of confiscated fireworks serves as the case study for this video training about the lack of standards for fireworks disposal. This course, with video produced by the Chemical Safety Board, explores why the company received the federal contract, the lack of federal standards for the disposal of fireworks and the series of missteps taken by the company’s workers that contributed to the explosion.
The video discusses which federal agencies are best suited to develop and implement standards and best practices for handling fireworks disposal, and details the recommendations of the National Fire Protection Association relative to disposing of live fireworks.
This video training is appropriate for anyone who participates in the disposal of confiscated, excess or dud fireworks. Workers gain an appreciation for the hazards of working with fireworks by taking this course.
