Chevron Ignores Safety Standards At California Refinery Where 19 Fires, Spills & Explosions Have Occurred Since 1989

About 4,800 Richmond, California residents have sued Chevron for negligence at an oil refinery and putting them at risk by not issuing public health warnings immediately after a recent explosion, the 19th disaster to have occurred at the refinery since 1989. The explosion, resulting from a corroded pipe, exposed them to toxic fumes that brought on respiratory, gastrointestinal and other serious health problems.

Chevron's refusal to adhere to state and federal safety regulations is another example of the oil giant's disrespect for environmental laws both in the United States and abroad.
