A problem that many workers face on the job is a personal injury. But it
seems as if people who are working in the construction and oil industries
are more susceptible to injuries than other industries. This is because
of the dangerous nature of their job.
If you are working in an oil field such as the Bakken oil field, there
are things that you can do to help you avoid an injury at work. Below
are some tips that can keep you safe while at work on the oil field.
- Make certain that all of your materials, debris, and tools are put away
once they are done being used since when they are left out, it can increase
the risk of your coworkers slipping, falling, or tripping over them.
- Wear the right protective clothing and gear whenever you are on the job
site. This includes eye wear or safety goggles, hard hat or helmet, long
sleeves and pants, protective gloves, and sturdy boots.
- Immediately report all unsafe conditions and accidents to supervisors quickly.
This is going to lower the risks of any further or future accidents and injuries.
- Only use the items for which you have received training. If you have not
received proper training for using a certain machine, a piece of equipment,
or tool, don't use it. You should only use the equipment for which
you have gotten the proper training. If you don't, you are putting
everyone, including yourself, in danger.
- Take advantage of all of the training programs that are offered by your
employer and follow the safety policies and procedures that are in place
for your area. For the most part, these types of policies have been created
because of past injuries on the oil field and they can help you with staying
safe while at your job.
