The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have set specific oil field guidelines to help protect employees in the oil field from injuries and fatalities.
However, the growing need for the production of oil and gas throughout the U.S. means more companies are involved in drilling activities for the exploration of gas and oil and the ignoring of such regulations and guidelines.
The effort to meet deadlines and speed up production, many companies’, and their employees’ failure to meet the guidelines and regulations leads to fatal injuries to employees.
