Oilfield rigs, whether they are drilling rigs or work-over rigs, involve thousands of feet of electrical lines and cables. These provide ignition sources for the many flammable liquids and gasses that are involved in oilfield work. They also present electrocution hazards.
Exposure to electricity is still one of the leading causes of death in construction workers and other construction-related industries, such as the oilfield. In fact, electrocution is considered one of the “fatal four,” accounting for 8.9% of construction deaths, according to OSHA. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed faulty electrical systems, we may be able to help.
