Even with proper footwear, safety equipment and when a worker is properly trained and careful, a slip and fall accident may occur due to the various hazards present at any oil field or on any oil rig. When a worker loses his or her footing while working on an oil derrick, he or she may run the risk of falling from a height. When these incidents occur on the ground they are also potentially hazardous. A slip and fall on a slick work deck may lead to broken bones, neck or back injuries, spinal cord damage and head trauma. The severity of injuries may vary depending on the height of the fall. In some cases, a worker may slip and fall into
machinery, in which case catastrophic crush injuries may result.
