Summary or Abstract : This dissertation seeks to examine the impact of technology importation on occupational health and safety in both Saudi Arabian and the U.S. oil refining industries. Technologies imported to the Saudi oil industry take two forms: hardware (sophisticated equipment to run oil facilities) and software (policies and regulations pertaining to workers' health and safety, and employment rights installed by Aramco's founding multinational companies). This dissertation examines the role of social actors in both countries in importing such software technologies in Saudi oil industries. This dissertation utilizes qualitative, historically oriented, cross-national case studies to compare and assess workers' health, safety and rights in Saudi Aramco with its U.S. counterpart, Motiva Enterprises. Two facilities were chosen to conduct field research: Saudi Aramco oil refinery at Jeddah, and Motiva's refinery in Port Arthur, Texas. Jeddah refinery is fully owned by Saudi Aramco, thus, representing Aramco's health and safety policies and regulations. Port Arthur refinery serves as a reference case study for U.S. oil refining facilities. The aspects of occupational health and safety in SAMREF and LUBREF are also discussed to examine workers' health policies in Saudi Aramco's joint venture companies..
