Industrial Injuries and Refinery Accidents
Plant and refinery occupation or industrial work settings entail the greatest work related injury and deaths compared to other jobs. In light of this, mentioned below are the following types of jobs that carry a high risk of debilitating injuries or worse:
- Manufacturing plant
- Drilling rigs/sites
- Oil and gas refineries
- Factories and warehouses
- Construction sites
Irrespective of the chances of sustaining injuries, your employer is legally bound to provide you with all the necessary safety equipment along with a safe and functioning work environment. They must ensure all risks of injuries are controlled to the best of their abilities. This includes offering employees adequate training to handle heavy and dangerous tools and machineries, maintaining the proper workplace facility and having fully functioning equipment available.
Unfortunately, there are quite a handful of industrial employers that do not follow the safety standards and regulations placed by the federal government. And this is where you have to be careful.

This is a list of some of the most common workplace accidents in an industrial work environment:
- Exposure to toxic chemicals or materials
- Slips and falls

If you have been a victim of a workplace accident and you weren’t provided with the proper training or the equipment or if your employer did not provide a safe workplace environment for you, you are entitled to an industrial injury claim. The best thing you can do now is to hire an experienced trial lawyer to guide you with your personal injury claim.
An experienced trial lawyer will prove that you suffered your injuries due to the negligence of your employer. They help build a case to win your claim. Your employer will be liable to compensate you for the salaries lost in your treatment, compensate you for the traumatic state you are in and all that you have lost financially. They understand that loss you have suffered and the all that you have gone through.
In industrial injury claims you have to go against big companies and powerful employers. Not to mention the insurance companies hired by those organizations.
