Work Equipment and Tool Damage

Millions of people were affected by the 2010 Deep Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico as they were unable to work and lost the income on which they relied. The fishing industry and other water-based endeavors were particularly susceptible to the effects of the spill. Part of this is due to the fact that much of the equipment and many of the tools that are necessary to perform these jobs were damaged directly by the oil due to their presence on or near the water.
