Over , workers were employed in the oil and gas extraction and support industries in Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages. These workers are engaged in many different industrial processes needed to successfully drill and service a well. These processes frequently require the use of specialized equipment and specialized work crews. From to , oil and gas extraction workers were killed on the job Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries. Safety and health hazards and dangerous conditions that can result in fatalities for oil and gas workers include:.
Hundreds of thousands of people work in oil and gas extraction in the United States; 1 ensuring their health and safety is a major concern for employers, regulators, trade associations, industry groups, and local communities. From to , more than 1, workers were killed in oil and gas extraction operations, a fatality rate six times higher than the average rate for all U. Silica dust clouds from delivery trucks loading into sand movers at a hydraulic fracturing site. Inhalation of this silica is a major hazard associated with oil and gas operations. While fatal work injuries have been well studied, less is known about other health hazards.
Occupational hazards in the oil and gas industry: 5 important ways to reduce risk
Abstract The process of extracting oil and gas by unconventional methods from underground formations involves injecting high volumes of fresh water, chemicals, and proppants at high pressure into deep geological formations as a means of enhancing the extraction of hydrocarbons. This technique has vastly increased the potential for domestic oil and gas production and has been promoted as a way to decrease dependence on foreign energy sources, replace dirtier energy sources such as coal, and generate new jobs and economic development. At the same time, unconventional oil and gas UOG poses various known and unknown risks to public health and the environment, including water quality and quantity concerns, worker health and safety issues, air quality problems and methane leaks, health effect concerns including those for vulnerable populations , physical hazards, community-level impacts, and climate change effects. This policy statement is intended to cover the risks associated with the entire UOG process, including site preparation, drilling and casing, well completion, production, transportation, storage and disposal of wastewater and chemicals, and site remediation. In lieu of a strategic, national transition away from UOG—and other fossil fuel—development, policies that anticipate public health threats, require greater transparency, involve a precautionary approach, require comprehensive environmental impact assessments, and provide for monitoring and adaptation as understanding of risks increases are suggested to prevent or mitigate the negative occupational and public health impacts of UOG development.

У него есть охрана. - В общем-то. - Он прячется в укрытии. Стратмор пожал плечами.
Он позвонил и предупредил, что заканчивает работу над алгоритмом, создающим абсолютно стойкие шифры. Я ему не поверил.
И хотя в обычных обстоятельствах пришлось бы проверять миллионы вариантов, обнаружить личный код оказалось довольно просто: приступая к работе, криптограф первым делом вводил пароль, отпирающий терминал. Поэтому от Хейла не потребовалось вообще никаких усилий: личные коды соответствовали первым пяти ударам по клавиатуре. Какая ирония, думал он, глядя в монитор Сьюзан.

- Есть множество такого… что и не снилось нашим мудрецам. - Прошу прощения.
