The U.S. is a powerhouse in the global production of oil, and the oil industry in West Texas specifically is booming.
Home to the Permian Basin — the highest-producing oilfield in the country and second only to Saudi Arabia on a global scale — the Midland-Odessa region provides thousands of residents with a living both offshore and in oilfields.
But oilfield workers face significant danger every day. Grueling levels of physical activity over long hours, exposure to toxic and highly flammable substances, and the use of heavy machinery create a hazardous work environment.
Throw in negligent practices concerning safety standards, such as inadequate training and poor maintenance of machinery, and employees are even more at risk of sustaining devastating injuries in an accident.
