Refinery, Rig And Oil Field Injuries

The oil and gas industry may be good for business and development, but many workers and others pay the price through accidental injuries on oil rigs, in oil fields and in refineries that take many victims. A volatile mixture of hard workers, heavy equipment and explosive fossil fuels leads to many tragic injuries and fatalities in these industrial settings.

The risk associated with extraction, transport and refining of gas and oil plays out not only through dramatic, traumatic events like the 2005 BP refinery explosion in Texas City that killed 15 people. It is also evident in the scores of more common, but also devastating accidents on a smaller scale. Motor vehicle crashes, slip-and-fall accidents and accidents involving defective equipment, industrywide, add up to a great many accidental injuries and deaths at refineries, on oil rigs or in oil and gas fields.

Accidents and injuries are common throughout all sectors of the oil and gas industry. In all, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that between 2004 and 2008, more than 560 oil field workers were killed on the job and many more were injured.
