Oil Field Injuries from Falling Tools or Pipes
Workers at an oil field may be required to work on
oil derricks while 20 to 40 feet from the ground. Not only is the risk of falling something to consider, but the workers on the ground may be at risk of injury from falling tools or pipes. Human error, defective safety equipment and
machinery malfunction are all potential causes of falling object accidents at an oil field. Even when wearing a hard hat, steel toe boots and other protective gear, a worker may be at risk of catastrophic injury or even death if a tool or pipe falls and hits him or her.
