Working in the oilfield is dangerous enough with the long hours and dangerous machinery. Many things can go wrong: the new man messed up, a machine had a malfunction or the foreman ignored safety measures.
Sadly, most oilfield injuries aren’t minor; they are serious and lasting injuries that will dramatically change lives, often resulting in the loss of ability to work. These injuries often include lost limbs and broken bones, back and neck injuries, head trauma and severe burns.
These injuries can be caused from:
Falling from oil derricks
Slip-and-falls on slick work decks
Fires or explosions
Falling tools or pipe
Being caught in machinery
Being hit by a moving part
Tumbling freight from delivery vehicles
