The Dangers of the Road for Oil Field Workers
Sometimes it is more dangerous for an oil field worker to be on the road than it is to be on an actual oil rig. After a long day of working at distant oil and natural gas wells, many oil field workers get behind the wheel of company trucks to haul oil field casings or to return to the company's shop.
This has resulted in tragic and serious truck accidents when drivers fall asleep behind the wheel from fatigue. While there are strict regulations in place preventing commercial drivers from driving after long shifts, there are many exemptions for oil field workers. Some employers go so far as to encourage workers to falsify their log books.
The practice of horizontal drilling has led to an oil boom in the state of Oklahoma, particularly Alfalfa County and Woods County in northwest Oklahoma, which has led to employment growth. According to Oklahoma Corporation Commission records, more than 2,600 natural gas and oil wells were completed in the state in 2013.
While the oil industry has led to job creation, employers have the responsibility to ensure the safety of their workers, regardless of demands or deadlines. Our firm is not afraid to stand up to oil companies in the protection of your rights as victims. In addition, we wish to make our roads safer by preventing fatigued oil field workers from driving on our roads.
