Injuries Go Hand-in-Hand with Hardworking Oil and Gas Industry Workers
New Safety Improvements Help Reduce Hand Injuries, Enhance Performance

A job on an oil rig, a platform at sea, or at a refinery is tough work. Long hours, temperature extremes, and sometimes dangerous working conditions combine for an environment that can produce injuries for the workers. When you consider:
  • As the number of oil and gas industry workers has grown in recent years to more than 400,000, injuries and fatalities are on the rise, too.

  • With fatalities nearly eight times those of all U.S. workers and non-fatal injuries occurred at a rate of 2.0 per 100 full-time oil and gas extraction workers, 3.0 for workers in support activities for oil and gas extraction, but 5.4 for drilling oil and gas wells, the need for safety equipment and safe work practices is growing.

  • For the oil and gas industry, some 38 percent of insurance claims are for hand inquiries. This includes finger pinching, severe cuts, and abrasions and crushing injuries.

  • For oil and gas companies, the impact of each hand injury is $4,000 in administrative costs alone.

Mechanix Wear Gloves

Mechanix Wear®, the inventor of the high-performance glove category, is helping reduce hand injuries for the oil and gas industry with a new line of high-tech, hard-working oil and gas gloves. Designed through a year of proprietary field research with oil and gas workers in a variety of settings, the new Safety M-Pact® ORHD gloves deliver excellent grip, water- and oil-resistant performance, and structural protection from injuries. "In the past, oil and gas workers wore cotton or canvas gloves, often going through several pairs a day," said Brian Lunniss, director of research for Mechanix Wear®. "This didn't offer the support they needed to do their jobs effectively or provide the protection they needed to prevent injuries. We spent a great deal of time learning in the field with workers to understand what they really needed in a glove." Based on the research and testing, Mechanix Wear® engineered the Safety M-Pact® ORHD gloves with:
  • Mechanix Wear/Nascar logoThe highest level of protection and durability in a safety glove
  • Double-reinforced Sure-Grip rubberized palm for extra grip in slick situations and EVA foam heel pad to absorb impact
  • Rubber-molded exoskeleton from fingertip to wrist with stamped foam pad on tops of fingers to prevent pinching injuries
  • Highly reflective material on fingertips, wrist and palm to allow for highly visible hand signals on the job
  • High-tech material that is resistant to drilling lubricants and mud, yet washable for long use
  • Sizes from Small to XXXXL
  • Environmentally friendly packaging, with no plastic wrappers in consideration of wildlife
