Common Causes of Oilfield & Offshore Injuries

In a dangerous working environment such as offshore and in the oilfields, there is a wide range of common causes for injury. Some examples include:

Oil Rig Accidents

Working on oil rigs means you have to use complex and bulky equipment to perform tasks. If you aren’t well trained on how to use the equipment, it increases your chances of getting injured. 

Deck Accidents

From trip and crush hazards to electrical and pinch point hazards, the deck of an offshore oil rig can be a dangerous environment to work in. You can get injuries from electrocution, tripping and falling, or getting struck by heavy equipment. 

Equipment Failure

Sometimes equipment on an offshore vessel can fail. As a result, you may suffer severe burn injuries, electrocution injuries, and more. 


Fires and Explosions

Whether they happen due to poorly maintained pipelines, improperly stored fuel, or collisions between vessels, fires and explosions are among the most deadly causes of offshore injuries. 

Transportation Accidents

Offshore employees often rely on helicopters and water vehicles to safely transport them to rigs. Unfortunately, these forms of transportation can cause accidents due to negligence. 

Exposure to Harmful Substances or Environments

As an offshore employee, you’ll most likely come into contact with harmful substances like crude oil, production chemicals, and more. This can cause severe injuries such as chemical burns, asphyxiation, and more.
