Rig Collapses

Drilling Rig Collapse Injury

Although some injury risks in the oil field industry may be considered “part of the job,” serious and unnecessary accidents may also be caused by substandard workplace safety measures on the part of oil companies, contractors and equipment manufacturers. There are also third parties whose negligence may be responsible for oil field accidents, including independent contractors like rig movers, wireline operators, logging companies and frac companies. Some of the most common causes of drilling rig failures and collapses include:

  • Heavy equipment failures
  • Lack of adequate training
  • Errors in the drilling process
  • Worker fatigue
  • Rig blowouts
  • Failure to use proper safeguards
