Safety Management The numbers of deaths from Karachi factory fire were 289, and most of the fatalities were contributed to by toxic smoke. The cause was not intentional but it was caused by poor maintained generators. The cause would have been prevented if the factory had well maintained generators and follow safety measures when constructing the building. The fire could have been predicted because of daily occurrence due to poor safety measures (BBCNEWS).
The Con Edison power plant explosion was caused by the huge storm Hurricane Sandy. There were no casualties after the explosion. The event was unintentional because its cause was a natural disaster, Hurricane Sandy. Preventing the explosion was hard as its cause mentioned before is Hurricane Sandy, which caused flooding of electrical equipment rendering them useless. The event was sudden because the residents were caught unaware (Boyle).
An accident in the factory area in Dhaka, Bangladesh in a clothes factory fire caused 112 deaths while other people went missing. The event was not intentional as the cause is blamed on an electrical fault. Safety measures such as emergency exit could prevent such accidents. The accident could have been predicted because of the number of fire accidents, which are rampant in the country (BBCNEWS).
An explosion occurred in a healthcare products manufacturing company called Neptune Technologies killing 2 people and injuring 19. Most of the accident victims had serious burns. The details of the cause of accident were not provided as it was still under investigation. The accident could not have been prevented because it was unpredictable. From the number of casualties it is evident that safety measures are already available in the industry (CBC News 2012).
An industrial explosion in the steel making industry in China killed 10 people leaving 17 wounded. The industry does not provide safety measures to its workers so that they can cut costs and make more profits, which makes event human error. The accident could have been prevented if the company had provided full safety measures to its workers. The event could have been predicted. China industrial accidents are common due to poor safety measures as mention before (Aljazeera English 2012).
