There are many hazards involved in the production of Oil & Gas Production, from combustibility to toxic gas exposure. Workers are constantly at risk while on site and the correct precautions need to be put into place to ensure injuries and fatalities are kept to minimum.
Commonly found gases within oil and gas production include ammonia, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, chlorine, hydrogen, hydrogen sulphide, methane and propane. Each of these gases can cause serious health issues leading up to death should overexposure occur, which is why employers must ensure the correct gas monitors are used.
Another risk to workers is the potential for oxygen deficiency which can cause dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, loss of consciousness and ultimately death. Oil and gas production workers are commonly operating in confined space environments where oxygen deficiency is likely to be fatal.
