The field where heavy equipment is utilized is usually hazardous. Employers and employees should at least equip themselves with some of the basic safety measures.

Kyle Xanders said...

This just proves how important OSHA training is. OSHA saves life in such adverse conditions by offering safety measures for the workers that are easy to handle and fruitful for the workers.

Alex Lotorto said...

Joe and Kyle, if you look closely, many of these deaths resulted from faulty equipment and it is the responsibility of the employers to ensure a safe work site. I do agree that workers should understand the importance of safety measures and follow them, I follow them at my job.

" 2/7/2011 Enterprise Products dba Enterprise Transportation, Freeport, TX 77541 Worker was washing a chemical tanker truck that contained polyurethane foam and was found unresponsive inside the tank." There should be better safety measures taken by employers especially concerning chemicals from high volume hydraulic fracturing.

John Stevenson said...

Sometimes it is just foolish enough to get yourself involved in this kind of accident. The consequences is just not worth it.


Josh said...

Some people are not taking safety procedures in this kind of work seriously. This is why there are accidents like these and there will still be more in the future.

fall protection

Maia Dobson said...

It's sad to know that there's a great number of casualties on this new construction. I hope the contractor would provide more protection scheme and insurance for their workers to avoid accident.

Harry Matthews said...

Accidents and casualties are inevitable in any kind of job. Even portable flare stacks can cause trouble in oil wells. In order to reduce this statistics, OSHA and these companies give safety rules and precautions.

Dominic Duncan said...

In a place like that they should avail to programs or services such as he fall protection in Miami Florida to ensure heir safety and avoid any injuries

Damian Bathory said...

That is one long list of casualties. It makes me wonder if they ever considered or even have proper safety procedures and, maybe, a lockout tagout system to protect their workers.

Every year thousands of people die due to such miss happening. I think we can overcome this by using proper safety measure and by providing training of how to use equipments.
