Oil Rig Accidents Involving Millennium Workers
Some of the accidents that have occurred on oil rigs operated by Millennium include the following accidents:
- During the removal of an exhaust box weighing over 20,000 pounds onto a boat, the sling moving the weight failed. Before workers unhooked the load from the crane, a swell caused the boat to drop which further pulled on the sling and crane. This accident had the potential to not just do property damage, but also to seriously harm and even kill workers. Many heavy equipment accidents occur each year on oil rigs because workers fail to follow adequate safety protocol.
- A water vessel collided with an oil rig. Accidents involving boats and helicopters at oil rigs are very common because rain and other harsh weather conditions can make it difficult for the vehicle’s operator to see properly.
Understanding The Danger Presented By Asbestos
For many years, companies distributed asbestos to people while being aware that the material caused deadly injuries inside a worker’s lungs. As a result, a large number of workers were exposed to asbestos without being aware of the deadly medical conditions like mesothelioma that are likely to arise from frequent or prolonged exposure to asbestos.
