Oil refineries employ many engineers, scientists, and safety professionals to ensure crude oil products are produced safely, efficiently, and in good quality. However, it’s no secret that operating oil refinery comes with danger and risk. Whether you are an area coordinator, operations supervisor, mechanical worker, process operator, or someone in another role, being exposed to hazardous materials and dangerous working conditions have many risks. At ALIGNED, we want to ensure your business is protected wherever you work in the Alberta oil fields or elsewhere.
Why is Oil Refinery Company Insurance Important?
Where there is danger, there is a risk. When you are working in an oilfield or oil rig, there are many dangers and risks to the safety of your workers, as well as their surroundings. Some of these dangers include:
- Fires and explosions caused by flammable chemicals in the refinery causing significant damage to property, machinery etc.
- Air pollution and site contaminations from the release of fumes, chemicals, and hazardous materials.
- Bodily injuries caused to third party contractors, inspectors, visitors etc. in course of operations.
Having appropriate oil refinery company insurance not only shows that your business is responsible, but it also protects your business against liability and third-party claims.
