The Danger of Asbestos for Offshore Oil Rig Workers
For many years, oil exploration and production companies used a large amount of asbestos in their operations. Because asbestos has since been found to be a significant cause of very serious medical illnesses, offshore oil rig workers are at great danger of being harmed by these substances.
Workers who have been in the industry for several decades are at particular risk of being harmed by asbestos because the material was not regulated at this time. The medical conditions that can arise from frequent and prolonged exposure to the condition have the potential to result in very serious medical conditions that can create large medical bills.
