Oil Rig Safety

Practicing oil rig safety, even if you are a seasoned and experienced offshore employee, is by far the best deterrent of oil rig accident injuries. Workers with 10 years of offshore experience or less are 85% more likely to be killed on the job than an employee with 11 or more years of experience, showcasing just how long it can take to get accustomed to the dangers of such a career.

Here are some tips for staying safe on an oil rig:

  • Always wear fall protection when working in high places, including anchors, body harnesses, and connectors
  • Avoid struck by hazards by attaching your tools to a work belt or surface
  • Use guardrails or another barrier system to prevent objects from falling to lower levels
  • Barricade areas below elevated work zones
  • Wear a hard hat
  • Never stand under a suspended load
  • Perform daily safety inspections
  • Prohibit fire hazards such as spark producing equipment, catalytic converters, and cigarettes
  • Follow any and all safety rules

Falls and struck by hazards are especially common and fatal accidents that come with working on an oil rig.

Common causes of falls in the oil and gas industry include:

  • Unprotected edges
  • Slips or trips
  • Improper ladder use
  • Improper use (or lack of) fall arrest systems
  • Unstable working surfaces

By practicing oil rig safety, you are setting yourself up for a safe and rewarding career. However, though we genuinely hope that an offshore worker never has need of our services, the occasional accident is inevitable despite all the safety measures in place. This is where we come in.
