What are the types of oil field injuries?

Oil field injuries are often the result of a top-down safety culture of speed and greed as field workers learn to follow safety shortcuts, ignore standard industrial safety protocols, use inappropriate equipment, and issue inadequate (or nothing) security instructions. .

There are many different ways injuries can occur in an oil field. Common scenarios we see include:

  • Inadequately trained workers put the lives of those around them at risk.
  • Exposure to hazardous gases and explosions, which are often exacerbated by failure to properly recognize and report hazards through the use of work safety analysis.
  • Language barriers lead to a lack of knowledge of the surrounding conditions.
  • Tired employees take shortcuts to get the job done faster.
  • Drilling schedules put downward pressure on workers to complete the job on time at any cost.
  • Defective machinery or poorly maintained machinery creates an unsafe working environment.
  • The men of the company are dispersed widely and rarely appear in the workplace to ensure that the work is carried out safely.
  • Not following the chain of command.
