Accidents are all too often hiding around every corner at oil and gas extraction job sites. These are some of the most common causes of accidents in this industry:
- Gas Leaks
- Improper training
- Slips and Falls
- Defective machinery
- OSHA Violations
- & Other dangerous work conditions
The job of an oil and gas worker is to carry out plans designed by engineers who work for the oil companies. In order to do this, they operate machinery like drills, derricks, oil rigs and other equipment. This occupation involves a lot of manual labor. Because workers are operating heavy machinery, extreme caution is needed. Also, there are regulations which must be followed. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) enforce and enact safety rules in the Oil and Gas industry. OSHA also investigates accidents when they happen. Carabin Shaw represents injured oil and gas workers who are:
- Gas treaters
- Service unit operators
- Derrick operators
- Rotary drill operators,
- Engine operators,
- Roustabouts, and more.
Usually, derrick and rotary drill operators suffer more injuries than employees in other oil and gas field occupations due to the dangerous nature of these jobs. Any workers who also work a lot of overtime have increased exhaustion and possibly increased accident risk going with that.
