Potential Hazards on San Antonio Oilfields

Over 200 workers sustain fatal injuries a year in Texas, according to the United States Department of Labor. Many workplace accidents are caused because of the supervisor’s negligence or irresponsibility.

Owners and employers may be held liable for any of the following injuries:

  • Explosions, Fires, Exposure to Chemicals: When workers are exposed to hazardous chemicals or combustion, it is because these materials are out of place or because of poor management.
  • Malfunctioning Equipment: Oilfield owners are responsible for renovating wear and tear on equipment.
  • Slips & Falls: Most people would believe that slips and falls are caused by clumsiness, but this isn’t always the case. Workers fall if employers fail to place guardrails or harnesses for workers at great heights.
  • Falling Objects: Workers at elevated heights may drop a tool or a piece of equipment that can fall and hurt another worker. These tools should be secured on the worker to prevent objects from falling and harming others.

Dangers of Faulty Equipment for San Antonio Workers

Malfunctioning oil extraction equipment can trigger an explosion or fire. Every piece of equipment used to extract, transport, and store oil is owned and maintained by oil and gas companies. It is, therefore, their responsibility to keep these processes and equipment free from hazards. Companies often fail to repair or upkeep equipment to reduce costs—putting their workers' lives at risk. Defective equipment can also expose workers to toxic chemicals. If a chemical leaks, it’s usually because an employee was not properly trained or because the machinery used is defective. When employers fail to provide a safe work environment, they must be held responsible for their negligent behavior.
