Workers injured in industrial accident at Phillps 66
An industrial accident at the Phillips 66 refinery in Borger on Tuesday sent several people to the local hospital.
At around 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, several employees involved in planned maintenance work (or 'Turnaround' for those familiar with the term) at Phillips 66 in a unit that handles hydrofluric (HF) acid were taken to Golden Plains Community Hospital with injuries, according to Dennis Nuss, a Senior Advisor for Phillips 66 who works with Project Communications.
Details are still being clarified as the influx of turnaround workers has increased traffic inside the plant. Phillips 66 is investigating the cause and implications of the incident. According to Nuss, "We want to figure out exactly what happened. We want to make sure that something similar will not happen again."
