Contractor Severely Injured in Accident at ExxonMobil’s Refinery

Factory – oil and gas industry

A contract worker was severely injured in an accident at ExxonMobil’s refinery in Baton Rouge on Thanksgiving Day. According to reports, the worker, who was treated at a local hospital, lost both of his legs in the accident.

The details are limited at this early stage, but it appears that the incident occurred during ordinary operations at the refinery.

Offering his sympathies, Baton Rouge Refinery Manager Mark Northcutt said in a statement:

We regret that this incident occurred. Our thoughts and prayers are with the contractor and his family.

Accident at ExxonMobil’s Refinery Follows Recent Fatal ExxonMobil Facility Accident

The accident at ExxonMobil’s refinery in Baton Rouge comes just one week after a contract worker was killed in an accident at another ExxonMobil facility.

The worker, an employee of a subcontractor, lost his life while participating in a construction project at ExxonMobil’s Olefins Plant in Baytown, Texas. 

The causes of the accident at ExxonMobil’s refinery in Baton Rouge and the Baytown facility accident are currently being investigated.

Dangers Faced By Industrial Workers

Working at refineries, plants, and other industrial facilities can be incredibly dangerous. Indeed, workers are exposed to the possibility of serious injuries by simply using the equipment and chemicals utilized in industrial operations.

The gravity of the risks faced by industrial workers is fully demonstrated when tragic accidents like these occur, which sadly happens far too often.
