    Common Causes of Offshore Accidents

    As our offshore injury lawyers know too well, working offshore can be dangerous, often because the large corporations who operate offshore seek to maximize profits at the expense of safety. The fatality rate for offshore workers is seven times higher than for all U.S. workers. Common causes of offshore accidents include:

    • Helicopter crashes

    • Basket transfer injuries

    • Crewboat accidents

    • Falls from height

    • Dropped objects

    • Explosions and fires

    • Chemical burns

    • Equipment pinches and severed arms and legs

    • Slip and falls

    • Illness and disease

    • Exposure to toxic fumes and chemicals

    • Lifting injuries

    • Crane and hoisting equipment injuries

    • Collisions with rig floor equipment

    Types of Offshore Facilities

    The kinds of facilities where offshore injuries occur include:

    • Compliant Towers –narrow, flexible towers and a piled foundation supporting a conventional deck for drilling and production operations.

    • Drillships –self-propelled floating rigs that look like ships. Capable of operating in deepwater and move around more quickly than semis. Station-keeping is usually accomplished by dynamic positioning.

    • Fixed Platforms – built on concrete and/or steel legs anchored directly onto the seabed, supporting a deck with space for drilling rigs, production facilities and crew quarters. Immobile and designed for long-term use.

    • Floating Production Systems – large ships equipped with processing facilities and moored to a location for a long period. These include FPSOs (floating production, storage, and offloading systems), FSO (floating storage and offloading systems), and FSU (floating storage units).

    • Inland Barges – these rigs are specially adapted for inland waters close to shore.

    • Jack-up Platforms – platforms that can be jacked up above the sea, and can be lowered like jacks. These platforms, used in relatively low depths, are designed to move from place to place, and then anchor themselves by deploying the jack-like legs.

    • Jack-up Rigs – Used for shallow water drilling, these have legs that penetrate into the seafloor and the hull jacks up and down the legs.

    • Platform Rigs – self-contained rigs that rest on fixed platforms. Used for field development drilling.

    • Seastars Platforms – mini-tension leg platforms.

    • Semi-submersibles – floating mobile offshore drilling units that have ballasted columns. Station-keeping is accomplished either by anchored mooring lines or dynamic positioning systems.

    • Semi-submersible Platforms – legs are buoyant and permit structure to float. Can be moved from place to place.

    • Spar Platforms—moored to the seabed with more conventional mooring lines.

    • Tender-Assist Rigs – monohull units that are moored next to a platform. The rig is installed onto the platform, but power, storage and other functions remain on the tender.

    • Tension-leg Platforms – consist of floating rigs tethered to the seabed in a manner that eliminates most vertical movement of the structure.
