Oil and gas workers encounter countless risks on the job due to the multitude of specific tasks they perform daily. Constant hazards include heavy equipment, sharp objects, and flammable or toxic liquids and gases. This means high potential for injuries from crushing impact, cut or flame, ailments caused by exposure to chemicals and oil, and even muscle and joint strain from long shifts.
