The National Transportation Safety Board recently stated that the cause of a fatal natural gas explosion last year in New York was due to a poorly welded gas line, USA Today reported on June 9.
The accident, which occurred on March 12 of last year, resulted in the deaths of eight people and injuries of 50 others. A sewer leak apparently undermined the gas line, 60% of which was found to not be properly welded. The solvent used to clean the area was alcohol, which is not the most effective substance.
The contractor in charge of the welding, a worker with Consolidated Edison, had credentials that expired a month before working on the project in December 2011.
Another issue that contributed to the explosion was lack of response time. According to reports, people smelled gas the night before the explosion but did not report it in time.

The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administrationfined Staten Island contractor Formica Construction $121,000 on May 28 in relation to a fatal demolition accident that occurred in November of last year, the New York Daily News reported.
On November 28, Delfino Velazquez was crushed by a mezzanine floor due to the contractor’s violation of several safety rules, including the failure to arrange a pre-demolition engineering survey of the area to measure the stability of the building. Other violations included failing to train workers to recognize risky situations and tearing down load-bearing walls before an upper floor.
This is Formica’s second time to be involved in allegations of safety violations in the workplace, with Formica owner Kenneth Formica previously pleading guilty to criminally negligent homicide after another worker, 39-year-old Lorenzo Pavia, was buried alive in a trench that suddenly collapsed in 2007. Formica spent 16 weeks in prison.
Velazquez’s daughter, Monica, said at a recent union-led press conference at City Hall that Formica should never have been able to resume business after the first worker death.
