Workers in industrial and manufacturing industries hold some of the most dangerous jobs in the world due to the risk of industrial accidents they face on a daily basis. According to a 2014 census published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the tally of fatal on-the-job injuries was up by 9% over 2013.
Plant explosions, fires, and hazardous chemical exposure are only a few types of industrial accidents that injure or kill many people nationwide every year. An extreme example is the Deepwater Horizon or BP oil spill of 2010, in which the oil platform exploded and sank, killing 11 people and spilling hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.
