The Risks of Refinery Work

Most refinery workers, including refinery workers employed by third-party contractors, are needlessly injured because of safety issues, including exposure to hazardous chemicals, toxic byproducts of oil and petroleum production, and a whole host of pollutants that have been linked to serious diseases.

Refinery workers at the highest risk of injury and toxic exposure include:

  • Welders
  • Painters
  • Platform workers
  • Sandblasters
  • Pipefitters
  • Corrosion removal laborers
  • Cleanup crew
  • Refinery maintenance operators

Additionally, workers in industries related to oil and petroleum refining – such as workers in the chemical industry, the plastics industry, rubber workers, plywood and furniture workers, and industries that utilize petroleum-based by-products in their manufacturing process – are at risk of occupational illness or injury.
