Working Around Or Near Oil And Gas Facilities Can Be Dangerous
In West Virginia and Ohio, oil and gas production continues to rise. Many of your family and friends probably know someone who works in or around these facilities.
While the industry is a big economic contributor to our community and a source of livelihood for many, the work is much more dangerous than a typical job. Workers need to be especially careful and vigilant for the safety of themselves and others. Often times, these job sites have multiple subcontractors handling different tasks and they do not carefully coordinate with the other companies on the site resulting in mistakes that leave workers seriously injured or even killed.
Nevertheless, mistakes are made, and accidents at these facilities occur more often than you would think. A person could suffer severe burns or other catastrophic injuries from another’s errors. With these injuries come extreme medical costs, long recovery times and irreversible changes to a person’s livelihood.
