While the oil boom has been great for Texas, Texas oil field workers have and continue to experience a high rate of on the job injuries. Most of these injuries are severe or even fatal, and many of these injuries have lasting effects on the both the workers themselves and the families who love and care for them. Ultimately, oil field injuries are a combination of haste, training issues, and the highly dangerous nature of the work itself.
Oil field accidents include fire, explosion, heavy machinery accidents, high pressurized equipment accidents, and pipeline accidents.
The oil and gas boom should not compromise on the safety of either the workers or the surrounding communities.
