Dangers Involved with Offshore Work
During its time of operation, there were several reports of accident lawsuits brought against Dynamic Offshore Resources.
One lawsuit claimed that a worker was injured during a personnel-basket transfer to a platform on a Dynamic offshore oil rig. Another lawsuit involved workers who received second and third degree burns from flash fires that were caused from faulty wiring in machinery. A third accident report claimed that a worker had become trapped between two pieces of machinery and was nearly crushed.
The Hazard of Asbestos for Offshore Workers
Asbestos has been established as a very toxic material that can cause one of several fatal medical conditions. For many years, however, a large number of companies used asbestos in a variety of products. As a result, there is still a risk that oil rig workers might be exposed to exposed to asbestos that remains in a building. When offshore oil workers are diagnosed with asbestos related conditions, they frequently face a large number of obstacles including mounting medical bills.
