Increases in Oil and Gas Accident Injury Reports

Since the first oil wells were drilled in Pennsylvania nearly two centuries ago, workers in the energy industry have had some of the most dangerous jobs available. However, recent increases in production have contributed to the energy industry having one of the highest injury and fatality rates of any sector of the American economy. A report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that oil and gas accident injury rates are eight times that of all other American workers. From 2000 to 2009, producers have reported 576 oil and gas accident injury incidents, including 161 fatalities.
