A Man Died in an Industrial Accident at the Vallourec Facility in Muskogee, Oklahoma


Muskogee, Okla. — A 47-year-old man lost his life in an industrial accident at the Vallourec facility. The incident happened Monday morning off Port Place, near the Water Plant.

 According to reports, authorities arrived at the site and discovered a worker who had sustained fatal injuries in an accident.

At present, the identity of the victim is being withheld.

Families need support and answers following the unexpected death of a loved one

A person dies about every 96 minutes due to a work-related injury (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2022). Because there is a serious problem with workers getting hurt or killed while on the job, some people start to believe that little can be done by employers to prevent these deaths. This is untrue — the risk of injury or dying should never be part of a job description. No family should ever send their loved one to work for the last time.

In regard to this incident, we don’t have any details of what caused this worker to die. However, having investigated and handled countless work-related deaths, we have found that most are preventable when proper safety measures are in place. When an employer, contractor, or manufacturer of equipment fails to keep people safe, they need to be held accountable. Allowing wrongdoers to escape liability by pointing to the injured or killed is unacceptable and should not be permitted to happen.
