Workplace accident in oilfield claims life of 1, limb of another

Oilfield workers in North Dakota and other states often put their lives on the line whenever they are on duty. The hazards of their jobs were once again underscored when a workplace accident claimed the life of one worker and a limb of another. This tragedy occurred recently at a drilling site in another state.

Fatal oil field job injury chances 3 times national average

Workers in the oil and gas industry in North Dakota and elsewhere will always face high risks, even though the fatality rate in this industry has decreased significantly over recent years. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the fatal job injury rate was reduced from seven times the national average in 2005 to three times the national average in 2015. However, vehicle accidents, chemical exposure, fires and explosions will continue to threaten the lives of oil field workers.
