The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shares that there are more than 860,000 workers employed in chemical manufacturing plants throughout the United States, and the primary types of chemical manufacturing include the following:
The basic manufacture of chemicals
The manufacture of resins, synthetic rubber, and artificial synthetic fibers and filaments
The manufacture of pesticides, fertilizers, and other agricultural chemicals
The manufacture of pharmaceuticals and medicines
The manufacture of paints, coatings, and adhesives
The manufacture of soaps, cleaning compounds, and toilet preparations
The manufacture of other chemical products and preparation materials
Any one of these types of manufacturing can lead to life-threatening plant explosions when the exacting safety rules, regulations, and restrictions that are put in place to help prevent such tragedies are not adhered to carefully enough.
