Bakken Oil Field: A Construction Accident Worth Investigation

A construction accident may occur at any time in any place. Working in construction is a dangerous job as anyone who has spent time doing it will attest. Perhaps one of the most common places for these types of accidents to occur is at the Bakken Oil Field.

There are numerous stories about blood shed at the Bakken Oil Fields. The stories that have come out of the oil fields are horrific and nothing that anyone should have to witness while they are working to make a living for their families.

According to a recent investigation someone dies from a construction accident at Bakken once every six weeks. This number is likely higher because there is no way for federal regulators to record deaths that are related to gas and oil. In addition, certain fatalities are not included by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in the United States.

Further research as to why these accidents continue to occur needs to be done and quickly before more blood is shed.
