Risks for Oil Rig Workers at Flextrend Development Company

Even though Flextrend is a little over 20 years old, there have been several accidents that have occurred at the company’s offshore oil rigs, which include:

  • A worker was harmed while completing a pre-use inspection of a crane. The worker while climbing the crane had to enter through an open hatch at the top of the ladder. A hatch door was not in the closed position, which created an open hole. The worker fell through the hole and received injuries to his upper right arm as well as lacerations on his head.
  • A worker injured his right index finger by having it smashed by two pieces of machinery while decommissioning a portable crane.
  • A worker manually opened a train resulted in oil spilling, which led to a slip and fall accident that injured a worker’s back..

How Asbestos Can Harm Oil Field Workers

Even though asbestos has been prohibited, there is still a risk of workers being exposed to the hazardous material. Long term and frequent exposure to asbestos has been shown to cause asbestosis and mesothelioma.
