Description

Automotive News investigates an explosion at a TRW Vehicle Safety Systems plant in Mesa Ariz., in which one employee was killed and another suffered third-degree burns over half his body. Automotive News finds that despite TRW's claims that the employee's incompetence had been responsible, there had been scores of fires, explosions and spills at the two plants leading up to the incident, which may indicate a history of unsafe conditions.
