Causes of Oil & Gas Well Accidents
Many times, the blame for these types of accidents can be linked back to companies working in Texas who put their profits over the safety of their employees. To capitalize on profits, some corporations will cut corners and pressure workers into dangerous situations.
Some common causes of oil and gas well accidents include:
- Bad weather conditions
- Inexperienced workers
- Poor training
- Poorly maintained drilling rigs and other equipment
- Failure to communicate
- Failing to follow or update safety procedures
- Employee/employer recklessness
Any of the above can dramatically increase the risk of serious injury and death. Additionally, local citizens and families are at an increased risk of injury as these drilling sites move into more populated areas.
