Offshore workers face a unique set of challenges and risks. Not only is the work physically demanding, but the close contact with large equipment and heavy machinery can lead to serious personal injury if the negligence of an employer or other employee is involved. In some cases, maritime workers are caught in catastrophic accidents, such as explosions on an oil rig that can cause serious burns or death. Slip and fall accidents are also very common for offshore workers.
