Two workers suffer burns after explosion at Utah titanium plant
03 April 2013
The Salt Lake Tribune said on April 2 that two workers caught in an explosion at a Tooele County titanium products factory were flown to the University of Utah to be treated for second-degree burns and exposure to toxic chemicals. It was not immediately clear what sparked the explosion at the ATI plant in Grantsville.
The workers suffered burns to their chests, hands and faces and may have been exposed to a cocktail of chemicals that includes tetrachloride-4, magnesium chloride and chlorine, said Tooele County spokesman Wade Mathews.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration was contacted following the incident and will likely conduct their own investigation.
