A fire risk assessment is expected to be needed following an accident at a chemical plant in which a worker has been killed.
It is thought that 17 employees were inside Rubbertown's Carbide Industries plant at the time of the explosion, which resulted in a fire.
A South Indiana member of staff died and three other workers are receiving treatment in hospital for the injuries they sustained.
Doug Hamilton, the city's emergency management director, stated that there was no risk to the general public in the area, after police warned locals to stay indoors.
"There is no risk to the community right now and hasn't been," he was quoted as saying by the Courier-Journal.
Terri Humphrey, a resident of Riverside Gardens, added that she was "furious".
Neal Stone, director of policy and research at the British Safety Council, recently claimed health and safety standards such as carrying out risk assessments is key to success for a business.
