A death at a Texas refinery on May 11 owned by ExxonMobil was the third at that location since 2013 and the second at an area refinery over the past year. A 37-year-old man was hit in the head and neck by a falling pipe as he worked on a heat exchanger. The man was an employee of industrial engineering company Altair Strickland. He died at the scene.
Each year in Texas, many people are injured while at their jobs. Most people go to work believing that they will not be harmed while there, but injuries are quite common and can happen in a variety of different work settings.
