Oil field workers in New Mexico are subjected to inherently dangerous job duties that can put their lives at risk when safety procedures and mechanisms are not followed, or if adequate training has not been implemented. These workers can experience catastrophic injuries which can have far-reaching and lasting implications on their ability to work and their personal lives.
According to a report from the New Mexico Department of Health, in 2013, there were 54 oilfield deaths. Based on the number of oilfield workers in our state, there was a fatality rate of 6.7 per 100,000 hours worked by a New Mexico oilfield worker. The national fatality rate was 3.2. Clearly, New Mexico oilfields and rigs can be an unsafe place to work.
