Accidents Faced By Prime Natural Workers
The Centers for Disease Control report that from 2003 to 2010, over 120 workers were killed in accident at oil rigs. Oil rig workers at Prime Natural Resources have been harmed in accidents that have occurred in the following ways:
- A flash fire occurred at a Prime Natural offshore oil rig which had the potential to seriously harm and even kill workers. Chemical leaks, the large use of combustible material on rigs, and failure by workers to follow safety protocol is are some of the most common reasons why accidents occur.
- A worker was struck by a falling object. Falls are very common at oil rigs because workers fail to obey posted warnings or platforms are improperly constructed. These accidents can be particularly deadly if workers fall into the Gulf of Mexico.
The Danger of Asbestos for Oil Rig Workers
There is a large body of medical research that has established the connection between asbestos and deadly lung conditions like mesothelioma and asbestosis. Since the 1930’s, many companies, however, subjected oil rig workers to the danger of being harmed by asbestos despite knowing that asbestos has the potential to be very deadly.
