Worker death raises concerns about safety and training in booming oil and gas fields
Charles "CJ" Bevins was killed at a natural gas drilling site in New York in 2011, one of 110 oil and gas extraction workers killed in the United States that year. A short obituary in the local newspaper and a funeral service marked the 23-year-old's death. Since then, his family has struggled to move on. They have been working with a New York state senator on legislation that would require oil and gas field workers to go through certified training. In this special report, E&E reporter Gayathri Vaidyanathan talks with CJ's family and coworkers and investigates safety issues in the rapidly expanding industry.
