Accidents and MC Offshore Workers
The Centers for Disease Control report that each year numerous offshore oil rig workers die in accidents. Recently a worker at MC Offshore Petroleum was found to be injured when:
- An oil rig he was working at collapsed because the scaffolding was not properly assembled. Another very common reason why oil rig accidents occur is that proper safety barriers are not placed around construction sites.
The Danger Asbestos Creates For Oil Rig Workers
Medical research has established that exposure to asbestos has the potential to result in several very deadly medical conditions including asbestosis and mesothelioma. Regulations have since been passed to prohibit the use of asbestos in new buildings, but there is still a risk that workers might be harmed by asbestos that still remains in older buildings.
