Video of Workplace Fire in NY

FYI – A recent local news article includes video of a fatal workplace fire in Orange County, New York. The video shows an employee wiping down a container when a fireball ignited. The article states that investigators think static electricity ignited a flammable liquid.


The video is a rare recording of a fire apparently caused by static electricity. If your site handles flammable liquids, this video may help to demonstrate the hazards to employees during upcoming safety talks or employee safety training.
