    Oil Rig workers are not being protected by greedy oil companies. Countless lives are endangered when drilling leads to explosion. Too many incidents like this happen each year in Texas and we have to ask, how long will we accept profits over people?

    Oil Rig Explosion

    Platforms, drilling fields, and refineries are dangerous working environments. The state and federal government have regulations that big oil companies must follow. There are numerous layers of red tape that allow for infractions to turn into dangerous working conditions creating hazardous environments where lives and limbs can and often are lost.

    If you or a loved one work in one of these environments you can report unsafe conditions annonymously and are protected under various whistle blower statutes. Protect your life, protect those whose lives depend on your coming home from the job.
