I have a hard time seeing "deadly but preventable explosions on a regular basis."  Maybe it's because I think in terms of movie-style explosions, but anything at least the size of a grenade should seriously snarl production for a while.  Meaning that preventative measures would be cost effective and therefore put into place.

Most industrial explosions are very small affairs.  Just enough to propel shiny little jagged pieces of metal through people.

That makes more sense.

ETA: WRT the "suicide nets", it's better than the alternative, isn't it?

Oh, by far. It isn't that suicide nets are bad, as much as it is extremely weird that they have to be a THING at all. I suppose one could argue that putting up suicide nets, as opposed to not putting up other measures, sends a sort of dehumanizing message. Of course, I don't know what other measures they may or may not have used.
Well, my gynecologist committed suicide...

They have to hold down janitorial costs, you see.
