Irving-Oil-Explosion

Irving Oil has been charged in connection with an explosion at its Saint John refinery during the Thanksgiving weekend a year ago.

WorkSafeNB says Irving Oil Limited is facing one charge under the Occupational Health and Safety Act and Irving Oil Refining is facing two counts.

The agency says because charges were laid on October 1st, it won't be releasing its final investigation report on the incident nor commenting on the findings.

A handful of workers received minor injuries in the blast that occurred as a massive maintenance project was underway.
