Report: Poor upkeep, evacuation planning led to 14 deaths at sugar plant

September 24, 2009 --

Poor maintenance and safety procedures contributed to 14 deaths after a series of violent explosions at a sugar plant near Savannah, federal regulators said today. Imperial Sugar Co. allowed combustible levels of sugar dust to accumulate, failed to train workers for evacuations and did not warn them properly about the February 2008 fires. Emergency notifications came only by 2-way radios and cell phones. “Many workers had to rely on face-to-face verbal alerts in the event of an emergency.”
