Some rigs can be very dangerous. It all comes down to policy and how management directs the work - top down, if you will. Injuries usually happen when someone is in a hurry/not paying attention, or there is a breakdown in communication.
I usually only see small things (let me find some wood to knock on...). Sniffles. A smashed finger here and there. There are a lot of administrative things that are required and safety is inherent. The company I am contracted to expects safety to be a way of life. I also work for the world's leading provider of safety, so it's kind of mine, too.
