Common Dangers in Plants & Refineries

Common Dangers in Plants & Refineries

Being a plant and refinery worker is one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. Plant and refinery jobs contain a high level of risk that often leads to serious or even fatal injuries.

Plant and refinery workers are exposed to the risk of explosions every day. When explosions do occur, the results can be fatal. Research shows that the United States has had the highest number of plant and refinery explosions compared to any other nation in the world. Workers are often left with severe burn injuries and life-altering disabilities.

Gas Hazards

Especially in oil refineries, some gases may be released into the base. The gases released can include sulfur dioxide, hydrogen, and oxygen. If workers aren't wearing the right protective equipment or not properly training to avoid exposure, it could result in serious injuries or illness.

Chemical Exposure

Chemical exposure is another danger that can affect workers if they don't wear the proper protective equipment. Chemical exposure can increase the chances of cancer, damage to the lungs, or skin burns.

Poor Equipment Management

Workers must be properly trained when working at a plan and refinery to prevent work injuries--especially when handling heavy equipment. When workers don't follow safety protocols or lack training, it could lead to serious injuries, such as amputation or other disabilities.
