“My sincerest condolences to the families of the two individuals who passed away as a result of injuries sustained by the explosion. It was gut-wrenching to hear the news and my thoughts and prayers are with them. Working at a refinery is a dangerous job, but regardless, no one should have a loved one’s life snatched away because of a workplace injury.
