    Because they don't get the fluid splashed on their clothes everyday.

    Have you heard of accidents in the workplace? They do happen. The man who showed up at the ER in Colorado had suffered a workplace accident. Is that beyond your understanding?

    but your comparing drilling to fracking again,one uses hydraulic pressure and one doesnt,one would assume the safeguards would be greater when doing something under pressure.


    oh and btw oil companies records,they still hear about exxon valdez,and the bp oil spill,and other smaller incidences involving gross negligence to safety and environmental hazzards.

    You thunk drilling isn't under pressure?

    Go down a few thousand feet, cake-over your BHA and watch your downhole pressure shoot up to a couple thousand PSI...lol! If your lucky, your BHA is caked. If you have a bridge above the BHA, you run the risk of an explosion when you shake it loose.

    Oh, and the Exxon Valdez? That was a ship wreck. It had nothing to do with drilling, nor fracing.

    that still doesnt change the matter,you are dealing with possible pressure vs guaranteed pressure.and it still doesnt negate the extreme blunders to date,or companies refusing to clean up oil spills like bp until lawsuit settlements became more expensive than actually cleaning up their own mess.
