construction accident may occur at any time in any place. Working in construction is a dangerous
job as anyone who has spent time doing it will attest. Perhaps one of
the most common places for these types of accidents to occur is at the
Bakken Oil Field.
There are numerous stories about
blood shed at the Bakken Oil Fields. The stories that have come out of the oil fields
are horrific and nothing that anyone should have to witness while they
are working to make a living for their families.
According to a recent
investigation someone dies from a construction accident at Bakken once every six weeks.
This number is likely higher because there is no way for federal regulators
to record deaths that are related to gas and oil. In addition, certain
fatalities are not included by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration
in the United States.
Further research as to why these accidents continue to occur needs to be
done and quickly before more blood is shed.
