    B.C.'s oilpatch is the most dangerous place to work: WorkSafeBC - By Brian Morton, Vancouver Sun
    Over the five years, there were 92 serious injury claims accepted, which represent six per cent of claims in the industry, as compared to just two per cent for all industries combined.
    The industry recorded 35 fatal claims between 2002 and 2006.

    According to the survey, oilpatch jobs with the highest number of claims included oil and gas drilling, servicing and related labourers, truck drivers, floorman/woman for oil and gas wells, and oil & gas well drilling workers.

    The three most common types of accidents are struck by object (16 per cent), overexertion (15 per cent), and falling (11 per cent).
