The safety regulations at any refinery are extremely important and directly correlated to a staff's level of danger. Louisiana and the rest of the Gulf South is home to a large number of refineries, meaning there are thousands of workers who are at risk of injury for several hours a day. It is our job to make sure our people are safe and Greenup Industries puts safety at the forefront of every job we work on.
There are inherent risks present in the industrial industry that must not be overlooked. It takes detail oriented, meticulous teams to provide the proper environment for those working in the refining industry, which is why you don't often hear of major accidents or disasters on sites. Extensive procedures are conducted to manage potential risks all the while keeping operations running smoothly for all workers and the communities that surround these sites.
Because of the high safety standards, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports:
- Refining is one of the safest industrial activities in the US, with fewer worker injuries than sectors such as education, retail sales, and financial services
- The rate of non-fatal injuries among U.S. refinery workers declined by 36% between 2003 and 2011
- efiners operate under extensive self-imposed safety measures designed to provide maximum protection to our communities
Greenup Industries has been recognized for its efforts to keep safety standards a top priority in all of our work and this would not be possible without our team of experts working in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and California. The oil and gas industry could be so much more dangerous, but with crews like ours, negative statistics are quickly becoming a thing of the past.
