Oil & Gas Injuries & Deaths Database

There are hundreds of oil and gas related injuries and deaths each year. Here is a great database that documents these accidents and other industrial related incidents.  We do our best at Drilling Maps to map this locations if the information is available.  Seeing clusters of incidents will give us a better understanding of the research that needs to be done.   Oil and gas injuries and deaths database.

The Incident Alerts publication sends out emails a week, The intended purpose is to raise awareness of workplace accidents, specifically the frequency in which they occur, with the hope that workers will begin to realize that accidents happen much more often than they think. The site breaks down the accidents into four (4) categories: Industrial, Construction, Workplace Violence and Miscellaneous. I only report accidents that occur at fixed facilities. Unfortunately, the database does not report on transportation accidents and it does not include accidents involving Fire or Police department personnel.
