Industrial drilling tools are used in the drilling of gas, oil, and water wells. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be used for a variety of applications. Gas drilling tools include hammers, chisels, and drills. Oil drilling tools include derricks, jacks, and pumps. Water well drilling tools include cable drives, rotary rigs, and water pumps.
In the past decade, there have been an increasing number of oil drilling tool accidents. These accidents can result in serious injuries to workers, including amputations.
One of the most common causes of oil drilling tool accidents is when a piece of equipment falls off the wellhead. If a worker is standing too close to the wellhead when this happens, he or she may be struck by the equipment and become injured.
Oil drilling accidents can occur during the extraction process itself, as well as during transport and storage. Equipment can fall off rigs, get caught in cables, or collide with other objects. Drilling mud and water may also contain toxic materials that can cause injuries if they’re breathed in or contact skin. In some cases, workers may be exposed to chemicals used in the drilling process without proper safety gear. This can lead to respiratory problems, skin irritation, and chemical burns.
Other types of oil drilling tool accidents can occur when workers are handling the tools improperly or when they are working in hazardous conditions. For example, if a worker is using a power drill in an area where there is methane gas present, he or she could be injured if the drill gets sparky and sets off the gas causing a fire or explosion.
If you are injured in an oil drilling tool accident, you may have legitimate legal claims against your employer. You may also be entitled to compensation from any companies that were involved in the accident, such as manufacturers of the equipment. Don’t wait to speak with an attorney about your case – it could be difficult to prove your injury without help.
