Work Injuries Will Likely Increase. You Need Someone On Your Side.
As the industry rebounds from the longest and hardest downturn in the recent history, rigs and equipment that have been stacked or mothballed will be fired up again. Inexperienced workers will be improperly trained and promoted. Crews will be rushed to make money. Poor maintenance practices will be revealed.
All of these things will lead to significant injury or death for too many workers.
