    An explosion and blaze at a fireworks factory killed at least 47 people, injured 46 workers and left 10 people unaccounted for on Thursday October 26, 2017 near Jakarta, the Indonesian capital.

    Many dead were burned so badly, their immediate identification was impossible with the death toll making the explosion one of Indonesia's worst Industrial disasters.

    The aftermath videos showing some of the charred corpses is breathtaking.

    i know when you work for a company that actually make explosives for "OUR" government, you have a lot of rules. no metal, nylon zippers or buttons only. you have to go through static zones, humidity levels, you name it. but one important one that seems minor is "NO WORKPLACE DATING"! can you guess why?

    I thought that firework manufacturing was done in small little buildings only big enough for one person to work in. That way if there is an explosion there aren't mass casualties. It doesn't seem logical to have it in one large building with some many workers.
    Maybe the situation I am thinking of is from another country with different regulations.
    So sad that so many died. And just so people can have a pretty display of lights. Sad

    That was nasty. Horrible way to go. Horrible to witness others burning.
    The workplace Death really annoying me. Because I'm almost certain that it's just a really dangerous environment and it was just an accident waiting to happen. It bugs me that employers don't care about killing people.

    For some reason when I see bodies the part I dislike the most is the bright yellow fat. For some reason it just looks completely disgusting. I hate the way that it's a rancid bright yellow colour like weird butter or something. It looks wrong. Like it's a bizarre toxic mess attached to the body. Like it shouldn't be on the body. the bones don't bother me the red doesn't bother me just the bright yellow fat. For some reason I imagined that the insides of people's bodies looked pink or red. So yellow just looks yucky.

    I was impressed by the ability of the man taking care of his friend to cry in a public place. I wonder would Westerners be able to cry like that in public, even after an event like that? I tend to think a lot of men and women in the west are so desensitised and cut off from their feelings that they might really struggle to cry under those conditions. At least in that country people are still able to show emotion.

    since you live in indiana i know you have seen fireworks buildings, not shacks, but large buildings that sell fireworks year round for next to nothing. "BUY 1 GROSS OF BOTTLE ROCKETS GET 4 FREE GROSS"! i am not kidding people! to make them this cheap there are a shit load of idiots making them. only way to do this is mass production.

    Yeah you're right, I have seen the shops. I can't quite remember one big enough to cause an explosion like this one, but I am probably wrong since I know very little about making and storing fireworks. I haven't bought fireworks since I witnessed a hand blown up. Cool as hell gore, but poor guy. They said factory in the article so I looked it up and they do have big factories to make the small fireworks for import and export in China. I found a good article about another explosion too. Out of 47 people only 3 made it out of this fireworks factory back in 2014.
    Chinese Factories Make Most of the World’s Fireworks. Unfortunately, They Keep Exploding.

    It seem China has mild regulations, but they aren't even followed very well, so there are loads of disasters like this one.
    In this article there is a section I am copying here called 'Accidents Happen'. It helps explain where I made my mistake thinking that fireworks were made in little buildings.
    *****************
    Although Beijing strictly regulates the manufacturing process and safety conditions have improved, accidents still happen from time to time.

    "It's better than it was ... but they still have some problems with their production," says Charles Weeth, Principal of Weeth & Associates, a pyrotechnic consulting firm.

    One of the key safety methods employed is to have flammable chemicals stored and mixed in small bunker-like buildings built into hillsides that only house one worker at a time.

    That way, if something happens, "it will take out only whatever is being produced right then, right there," explains Winkle.

    However, problems arise in loading and assembly areas, where there are often a number of workers together in close proximity.

    "It is not so much that they're not interested in worker safety, as much as it is tradition and resistance to change; keeping costs down and production up," says Weeth.

    "Beijing's goal is to keep people working by any means necessary and that's true whether it's making fireworks or iPods
    ."
    *****************

    I must have saw a show or read an article at some point that discussed the explosive stuff in fireworks and how it's made and I confused it with the actual making of the little ones. So there are guys working in little buildings in China that sometimes blow up.

    A key safety measure is to isolate explosive chemicals in bunker-like buildings built into the hillside.
