Energy production = unique risks
Energy production and transfer is risky business. Working with natural resources requires a complex assortment of equipment, personnel and expertise, all leading to unique challenges.
Workers in the oil and gas industry, for example, face more hazards than most. Confined spaces, safety hazards, flammable vapors and gasses all lead to dangerous work environments. These areas are more susceptible to OSHA investigations, fines and high workers’ compensation rates.
Claim advocacy to count on
One of our clients recently hired the product manufacturer of a water tank to apply a spray liner to the tank. Unfortunately, the tank failed and there was a claim filed in excess of $450,000. The carrier originally denied the claim. Our claim team worked with the carrier to bring in a higher-level management team who agreed to mediate and settle the claim.
