High levels of pressure used in hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, often creates a situation that can quickly turn dangerous. Because of the dangers associated with jobs tied to fracking, training, maintenance of equipment and proper protective equipment are vital to keeping employees safe on the job. Lacking training and expertise of any employees on the job can result in danger, injuries and even death of surrounding employees.

Explosions, burns and injuries related to the heavy equipment trucks and vehicles are just some of the types of accidents that are tied to fracking and related tasks. Equipment used on job sites must be properly maintained and companies have an important responsibility of properly training and equipping workers with safety gear and know how to safely complete tasks associated.
