2 Shell oil rig workers are killed off the Louisiana coast

Two oil rig workers were killed and another was injured on an oil rig off the coast of Louisiana on June 30. The fatal incident happened on the Shell Auger Leg Platform, which can be found 214 miles off the coast of New Orleans in the Gulf of Mexico, at around 9 a.m.

Storms often strike unpredictably at sea

Getting caught in a storm is incredibly dangerous, even for those who work at sea and consider themselves prepared for the worst. You can never quite know just how bad things are going to get or how intense the wind, rain and lightning will really be. All it takes is a bit of bad luck for a storm to turn into a disaster.

Maritime workers are at a significant risk for injury and death

Maritime industries can be found in virtually every state in the country according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In fact, an estimated 400,000 individuals work in this sector in Louisiana and throughout the United States. Many work in commercial diving, fishing, shipyards, in marine transportation, at terminals or in processing seafood. Many of these professions carry with them a significant injury risk.

Protect yourself from falling overboard

One of the most dangerous things that can happen on any boat -- a ferry, a barge, a cruise ship, a ski boat or anything else -- is when someone goes overboard. Even when the boat is not traveling at a very substantial speed, it can be all but impossible for the person to keep up, and that's just if they were not injured in the fall.
