Abstract
From the first intentional oil well drilled in 1889, Oklahoma's economy has relied on oil production. In 1987, when the last of the state's major drilling booms ended, the number of oil-related jobs plummeted. However, oil and gas production in Oklahoma has rebounded in subsequent years to make petroleum the state's number one industry. Drilling operations in 2003 hit a 15-year high, and the oil and natural gas industry currently employs 50,000 Oklahomans. Without careful planning, the oil field can present many safety hazards to workers. Below are descriptions of fatal incidents that have occurred in Oklahoma.
