Dangerous Occupations

The oil and gas industry is one of Louisiana's leading industries. Nearly 65,000 Lousianans are employed in the extraction, pipeline and refining industries. In 2011, the industry generated over $20 billion in household earnings for Louisianans.

Although the industry boasts thousands of employees, locals also rely on other private and public sector jobs.

There are no specific fields that can ensure a worker will not get injured, however some industries may be considered more dangerous than others.

Some industries with a higher rate of workplace injuries include:

  • Construction
  • Trucking
  • Health care services
  • Manufacturing
  • Hospitality
  • Railroad

No matter if you work in a dangerous occupation or not, your employer should provide adequate workers' compensation benefits if you are injured or diagnosed with an occupational disease.
