Oil and gas accidents can involve oil rig and derrick safety violations, pipeline transportation accidents, storage problems and explosions. Injured oil and gas workers suffer more severe injuries and take twice as long to recover. Common reasons for accidents include:
- Safety procedures not in place or outdated

- Delays in equipment or repair
- Carelessness or recklessness
