Oil Field Injury

Drilling for oil and gas is one of the most dangerous jobs in the Country, causing serious personal injuries and deaths each year.  Over a mere five years from 2002 to 2007 at least 598 oil field workers died on the job, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
During that five year period, the number of deaths per year rose by around 70 percent, from 72 victims in 2002 to over 120 in 2007.

Despite improvements with equipment and technology, the fact remains that oil field injuries have increased dramatically and the frequency of accident continues to rise.  Many experts believe that the level of injuries and death are attributable to a general lack of training of the worker by the employer, creating a situation of the lesser experienced worker exposing himself to injury and death or creating dangerous conditions for co-workers or vendors or others on a work site.   

Texas is by far the largest producer of crude oil and natural gas in the United States and with the discovery of the Eagle-Ford Shell, South Texas is at the heart of most of the recent growth in Texas Production.
