Oil and Gas

"Formula for success; rise early, work hard and strike oil."
J.Paul Getty

Working hard and striking for oil is what over 500,000 workers do every day in the Oil and Gas industry. Unfortunately, though, working hard often times means dangerous work. Hands often take a beating on an Oil Rig, from banged up knuckles to hazardous chemicals. With there being no shortages of hazards faced, workers rely on high-performance PPE.  MCR Safety ensures Oil and Gas workers arrive home all in one piece with it's industry leading gloves, glasses and garments.

The Oil and Gas industry is broken up into four core segments:

We cover each one of these industries in depth on separate sub-industry pages. Here is a quick snapshot of each one.


Oil's Origin

Occupations working across the above oil segments are indebted to ancient earth. In fact, when enjoying modern day amenities, everyone should appreciate mother earth. From driving gas-filled vehicles to drinking water out of plastic bottles, oil and oil-based products are everywhere…

Plants and animals that lived millions of years ago are at the root source of modern day oil. After being buried on the ocean floor for many years, animal remains became buried deeper and deeper. Over time, the enormous heat and pressure turned these remains into what we know as Oil and Gas.

Today, Oil and Gas companies drill through layers of sediment and sand to extract this coveted resource.

Economy, Oil and Gas Prices

An oil hungry world significantly influences the economy and overall demand for oil extraction. When the economy is vibrant across industrial, commercial, and consumer markets, there is a great need for oil and gas resources. However, when the economy is less strong, demand for oil and gas significantly drops. Keep in mind though, decreased demand from the US economy does not always equate to a reduction in oil prices.

West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil has been on a roller coast ride over the past decade.

A global perspective is required when thinking of the oil industry, definitely, when it comes to costs and pricing. An economic event in one part of the world easily affects prices for everyone. For example, the 2011 Tsunami in Japan caused international supply distributions of natural gas. Since Japan has limited gas production, natural gas was heavily imported to create energy, causing pricing to be somewhat volatile.

The retail price of gasoline includes four main components:
  • The cost of crude oil (The largest contributing factor to the retail price of gasoline.)
  • Refining costs and profits
  • Distribution and marketing costs and profits
  • Taxes

Employment and Injuries

The sub-industry employing the most workers is Oil and Gas extraction, which we fully cover in our Exploration, Drilling and Production industry page. Here is a look at employment across all Oil and Gas sub-industries:

Oil and Gas Safety

The Oil and Gas industry involves extremely hazardous work!  Drilling equipment, handling heavy pipes and handling oil-based mud are just some of the many hazards above occupations face where PPE is required.  Thankfully, Oil and Gas companies take safety seriously, which is evident in the below numbers.

Oil and Gas Sub-Industries NAICS # of Injuries
Support Activies for Oil and Gas Operations 213112 3
Oil and Gas Extraction 21111 1.5
Oil and Gas Pipeline and Related Structures Construction 23712 1.2
Drilling Oil and Gas Wells 213111 0.7
Petroleum Refineries 32411 0.5

Compared to other industries, incidents per 100 people is rather low.

"The safety of the people shall be the highest law."
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Roman philosopher

The safety of people is paramount for those working across the Oil and Gas industry.

At MCR Safety, We Protect People! For over 45 yers, we've manufactured and produced PPE OIl and Gas workers have come to rely on.

Let us help keep you safe when extracting "Black Gold"!

Common Oil and Gas Hazards

Click "Learn More" to find info on protecting yourself against these hazards and find the right gear for the job.

Crush and Impact

Blunt force impact is an everyday concern for a rigger.  Impact protection is this worker’s best friend.  Are you ready for the new impact standard?

Chemicals and Liquids

Hydrogen sulfide occurs naturally in oil and gas.  You will need chemical gloves and face shields when handling chemicals.  By the way, do not forget your goggles when opening pressurized systems. Check out the chemical protection offered.

Drilling Fluids, Water-based Muds and Oils

Exposure to drilling fluids is a definite concern for oil production workers, examples include drilling fluids, water-based mud, hydraulic oil, gear oil, and grease.  You will need safety gear made to last!

Fire and Explosions

Explosions caused by a spark igniting certain vapors or gases is a definite concern.  Flame resistant gear is mandatory across all production platforms, drilling rigs, and construction barges.  Max Comfort gear will keep you safe! 

General Hazards

Dotted cotton gloves are an industry favorite for light general maintenance.

Impaired Vision

There is no shortage of activities on a drilling rig where safety eyewear is required.  Splashing chemicals, flying debris, and sparks are concerns every Oil and Gas worker faces.

 

Inclement Weather and FR

Working in the rain and around liquids is common, along with staying FR compliant. Big Jake rainwear protects workers from ARC flash hazards!

Oils, Lubricants and Greases

You need excellent gear when gripping in oily surfaces.  Nitrile coatings provide ultimate grip in this environment.

Oily Grip

Nitrile coated products are excellent for gripping around lubricants, muds and oil.  However, our new Max Grid pattern takes first prize though when it comes to gripping in oil!

Repelling Water

Working outside involves facing Mother Nature head on, meaning wet conditions are always a concern.  HPT coated gloves repel liquids, providing a firm wet or dry grip!

Sharp Objects

Oil and Gas workers are always exposed to sharp metal.  Rest assured, we simplify the selection process on our cut protection page.

Visibility

Hi-Viz garments distinguish Oil and Gas workers, keeping them seen and safe.

Hydro Blasting

Arsenic, hydrogen sulphide and polluted water are real concerns.  Contractors deserve only the best PPE!  Max 6 Goggles, Face Shields and clothing are absolute musts.
