Accidents Involving Probe Resources Workers
Some of the accidents that have resulted in Probe Resources workers being injured or killed include the following examples:
- A worker was struck by a falling object. Accidents involving falls by workers as well as falling objects are very common at oil rigs. One of the most common reasons why fall accidents occur are because workers either fall to follow posted safety warnings or scaffolding is not properly assembled and as a result collapses.
- An accident occurred involving a worker who received burns after a flash fire. Each year, numerous oil rig workers are harmed by oil rig accidents which are caused by either failure to properly maintain equipment or defective machinery which short circuits.
- A boat struck an oil rig. Accidents at oil rigs are very common and frequently occur because either workers are not properly trained or workers cannot adequately see the rig.
How Asbestos Can Harm Oil Rig Workers
Asbestos were used for many years by companies as insulation, but laws have since been passed prohibiting the use of asbestos at oil rigs and other companies. There is still a substantial risk that workers will be exposed to asbestos located at older buildings and structures, however, which creates a significant risk of workers having mesothelioma.
