Have you or a loved one suffered an injury or illness during the course of employment at a refinery? Did you know that workers in refineries are regularly exposed to a wide variety of occupational hazards? Most refinery workers, including refinery workers employed by third party contractors, are needlessly injured due to safety issues including exposure to hazardous chemicals and toxic byproducts of oil and petroleum production, and a large host of pollutants that have been linked to serious diseases.

Refinery workers that are at the highest risk of injury and toxic exposure include welders, painters, platform workers, sandblasters, pipe fitters, corrosion removal laborers, cleanup crew, refinery maintenance operators, and turnaround and shutdown workers. Workers in industries related to oil and petroleum refining, such as workers in the chemical industry, plastics industry, rubber workers, plywood and furniture workers, and industries that utilize petroleum-based by-products in their manufacturing process, are also at risk of occupational illness or injury.
