It’s the second deadly explosion at a Louisiana chemical plant in as many days.

This time one person was killed when employees at CF Industries tried to pump too much nitrogen into a vessel.

A day earlier, two people were killed and more than 70 injured in an explosion at the Olefins plant in Geismar.

The cause of that explosion is still under investigation.

Better safety precautions when working with volatile chemicals?

Seems like a no-brainer.
