A quick look at the dangers of the oil and gas industry

Oil and gas extraction is a major part of the North Dakota economy, with more than 14,000 wells reportedly operating throughout the state in 2016. We have the second largest oil reserve in the United States, and along with Texas, our state accounts for half of the crude oil production in the country.

These bustling oil fields account for millions of oil barrels and far too many work-related injuries. North Dakota now has the highest percentage of laborer fatalities in the nation. The AFL-CIO Death on the Job Report for 2017 stated that North Dakota was the most dangerous state to work in with a fatality rate of 12.5 per every 100,000 people: “Oil and gas extraction industries accounted for 74% of the fatal work injuries in the mining sector.”
