Pipe welder at wastewater plant dies of injuries from explosion

A New York state wastewater treatment plant explosion killed a welder employed by a subcontractor at the plant and seriously injured a construction company employee. The worker accidents were due to a failure to train welders and others about the dangers of working in confined spaces and with methane gas, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The safety agency also said that M. Hubbard Construction and Joy Process Mechanical had failed to ensure safeguards that could have protected the workers.
