Many oil companies will do just about anything to produce that next barrel of oil, so they often cut safety corners and can put an oil field worker in a dangerous situation.

When oil field workers receive improper training or poor supervision because the oil company places profits ahead of safety, accidents are sure to follow.

Working in the oil and gas industry presents various hazards, with certain types of injuries being more prevalent than others. Here are the top seven most common workplace injuries in the oil and gas sector:

  1. Burns and Explosions: The presence of flammable substances and high-pressure equipment increases the risk of burns and explosions, which can result in severe injuries or fatalities.
  2. Slip and Fall Accidents: Oil and gas facilities often have slippery surfaces due to spills or inclement weather, leading to slip and fall accidents causing fractures, head injuries, or back injuries.
  3. Struck-By Accidents: Heavy machinery, equipment, or falling objects pose a significant risk of struck-by accidents, resulting in crush injuries, fractures, or traumatic brain injuries.
  4. Caught-In or Caught-Between Accidents: Workers may become trapped or crushed between equipment, machinery, or structures, leading to serious injuries such as amputations or internal injuries.
  5. Chemical Exposure: Exposure to hazardous chemicals or toxic substances, such as hydrogen sulfide or benzene, can cause respiratory issues, skin irritation, or long-term health complications.
  6. Musculoskeletal Injuries: Repetitive tasks, heavy lifting, or awkward postures contribute to musculoskeletal injuries like strains, sprains, or herniated discs among oil and gas workers.
  7. Vehicle Accidents: Transportation-related incidents, including collisions, rollovers, or off-road accidents, are common among workers commuting to remote oil and gas sites, resulting in injuries ranging from minor to severe.


Several factors contribute to the prevalence of these injuries, including the nature of the work environment, the operation of heavy machinery, exposure to hazardous substances, inadequate safety protocols, and human error.


If you’ve been injured while working in the oil and gas industry, it’s essential to report the incident to your employer and seek medical attention promptly. You may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs.

Additionally, you may have legal options to pursue compensation for your injuries, especially if negligence or safety violations contributed to the accident. Consulting with an experienced oil and gas injury attorney can help you understand your rights and pursue the compensation you deserve.

At Bagby Law, your consultation is private and confidential. In some situations, we will even come to you to discuss your matter and perform a free case evaluation.
