Recently in the last month, a blast took place in the metal fabricating and manufacturing company of Houston.
This blast killed around two workers and also damaged hundreds of structures in the factory itself which is a massive law for the company as well as the city dwellers. This incident created a lot of troubled debate around the city regarding the safety of the region.
Houston is one of the most crowded and industrial regions in the world and that is why it is very much important for the government to take care of the safety of the people in the City. After the blast, people pointed out the carelessness of the government regarding the zoning system for the industries there.
There is no proper zone in restrictions in Houston regarding the petrochemical facilities as well as business to handle some hazardous materials. That is the main reason why the blast happened in the factory.
The blast has not only affected the factory but it also damaged some public properties around the factory and for that, no compensation has been issued for some time. So people started debating whether Houston needs some safety measures like proper zoning of the industrial region or not to avoid father incidents affecting nearby houses.
According to them, the industry should be separated according to the areas and also proper maintenance of the chemicals used in the factory should be done.
The lack of proper zoning has stroke the debate to some extent. According to the people there, the government is not taking much responsibility regarding the development of the restriction policies.
Houston is the fourth-largest city in the nation but the government is not acting like that at all in terms of safety and security of the people staying there. The debate has gone all around the country and people from different regions also so came into the picture by stating their views through different means of media.
The blast in the factory has affected so many properties around other than the properties of the factory itself. 2 workers were also killed in the blast which made the situation even worse for the government to handle.
The growth of Houston is boosting day by day due to the industrial advancements. According to the people living there, they should be more attentive to implement more frequent inspections in the industrial region instead of just separating them according to the zone.
They can also implement the rule to disclose all the information regarding the materials handling in the factory to avoid any kind of mishap in the future. It can only be done if the government makes the permanent rule for that which should be taken very strictly.
Otherwise, the situation can be even worse in the future due to the increasing amount of handling hazardous materials in the factories without any precautions. For that, it may happen that the people around the industry also get affected largely due to the carelessness of the government.
