Excerpt from "Is an Employer Responsible for Unknown Hazards?"
Paul Engle, an experienced driver with Pure Services Inc., pulled his tanker truck containing nonhazardous red food dye up to the main pit of Industry Waste, a waste disposal facility. As he unloaded his truck, an Industry Waste employee was busily treating hazardous materials in an adjacent pit. Unbeknownst to Engle, the worker mistakenly added chemicals to the waste in the wrong order. A sudden chemical reaction occurred, which created a large chlorine gas cloud.
