Opening in the early 1990’s, LLECO Holdings focuses on oil and gas exploration and production in the Gulf of Mexico.
Accidents That Have Harmed LLECO Oil Rig Workers
Some examples of accidents that have occurred on oil rigs operated by LLECO include the following:
- In the process of moving a 25 barrel tank of calcium bromide on a water vessel, a crane snapped at the pedestal and fell onto the boat. The worker who was operating the crane was injured. The crane operator was determined to lack proper experience on how to safely operate a crane. A large number of heavy machinery accidents that occur on oil rigs are the result of workers who are not safely trained on how to operate heavy equipment.
- Several flash fires have occurred on oil rigs operated by LLECO Holdings. The reasons for these fires include the use of many different types of combustible materials on oil rigs as well as machinery that is not properly maintained and consequently short circuits.
The Threat Created By The Use of Asbestos
A large number of oil rig companies once used asbestos to satisfy a variety of purposes including as insulation. Many oil rig workers were exposed to asbestos as a result and it is often impossible to determine that exposure has occurred until a person is diagnosed with an illness like asbestosis or mesothelioma.
