Oil drilling involves a number of hazardous conditions, each of which can
lead to severe injuries: First, because oil is combustible, even a small
error can lead to extensive fires or explosions. Second, the machinery
used to drill oil is extremely heavy. Defective machinery or a negligent
coworker can turn any drilling equipment into a hazard. Third, the nature
of oil work lends itself to high risk situations. Not only is the work
fast paced—it can also be loud, making effective communication difficult.
With all of these factors at play, even the most cautious
oil field worker can be at risk for injury. A small oversight by anyone involved can lead
to long-lasting suffering.
Common types of oil drilling injuries include:
Loss of sight or hearing
Traumatic brain injury
