This paper deals with the hazards and safety issues and its management practices in Oil and gas industry. In Oil and gas industry, during the well drilling and other service activities involve the use and production of potential hazards. Oil and gas wells can release hydrogen sulfide and expose workers to hydrogen-sulfide gas. The three best practices to help prevent injury and death are: active monitoring for hydrogen-sulfide gas; good planning; and training programs for workers. Oil and gas workers exposed to chemicals produced and used in oil and gas industry may suffer occupational diseases of lungs, skin and other organs at levels relying on the amount and length of exposure time. Those exposed to hazardous noise levels may suffer noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). Other hazards include confined spaces that may injury or threaten life of untrained workers. The aim of occupational safety and health risk management is to identify and assess safety and health hazards existing at the workplace and to define appropriate control and retrieval steps.
