Safety Challenges in Oil and Gas
The fatality rate in the oil and gas industry is seven times greater than other industries. One of the greatest safety challenges in the industry is workers working alone. Many of these lone workers spend long stretches of time out in the field, operating heavy machinery, working at heights, and working with hazardous chemicals and gasses. Workers face a host of occupational hazards such as slips and falls, electrocution, falling objects, cuts and burns and toxic and flammable gas exposure, any of which could seriously injure or kill them.
Because they work remotely, it is difficult for employers to monitor their safety and take appropriate action if necessary. While these companies remain focused on making their operations safer and healthier, majority of workforce is on the field, mitigating risks and ensuring regulatory compliance can challenging.
