Jobs in the oil and gas fields have generally proven to be very dangerous. The heat, the risk of explosions, the heavy machinery, and other types of oil and gas field accidents ensure that physically exhausted employees are always of the top of the game.

However, pressure from the big oil and gas companies to increase profits by speeding up production has caused safety checks to decrease, working hours to increase and put much more physical and mental stress on oil and gas field workers from the top down to the bottom. These days, accidents involving hard working oil and gas industry employees are all too common. Contractor oversights, safety violations, equipment failures and refinery fires make these already dangerous jobs even more dangerous and risky.
