Regardless of whether you, or your loved one, work on a land rig or offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, you understand working in the oil industry is not for the faint of heart. Accidents, injuries and even deaths do occur–and more frequently than in other industries.
In fact, the oil and gas industry has an on-the-job fatality rate that is 7 times greater than that of any other U.S. industry, according to OSHA.
When it comes to non-fatal injuries in the oil and gas industry, the total recordable rate of injuries and illnesses for oil and gas operation “support activities” in 2015 was 2.1 cases per 100 full-time workers while the rate for drilling oil and gas wells was 3.0 cases per 100 full-time workers, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Why Do Oil Rig Accidents Continue to Take Place?
From negligence on the part of a rig worker to a full-scale equipment failure and subsequent blowout, like what occurred on the Deepwater Horizon, oil rig explosions can occur for a variety of reasons.
Throughout our firm’s many years of handling numerous catastrophic oil rig explosion cases, our Rig Explosion Attorneys have identified the most common causes of oil rig explosions both onshore and offshore. These include:
- The failure to properly maintain, repair or replace rig equipment;
- The failure to follow proper drilling procedures and safety protocols;
- Rushing the job or taking shortcuts in order to maximize company profit;
- Fire breaking out on the rig;
- Well blowouts; and
- Negligence or human error.
At the end of the day, explosions are NEVER supposed to happen. When they do, it’s almost always a result of a decision to place profits over safety.
