In this 2014 video taken by NIOSH, workers are seen opening hatches atop oil tanks, releasing volatile gases then leaning into the fumes to work. It was presented at an oil and gas conference last year by John Snawder, a NIOSH research toxicologist who is studying oilfield workers' exposure to petrochemical gases. Source: NIOSH.
