2013 National Oil & Gas Safety Stand Down
Oil and gas industry decision makers, specialists and managers joined representatives from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration on Dec. 3 at the inaugural Oil and Gas Environmental Conference in Dallas to exchange best practices and ideas on environmental performance and regulatory compliance. Sponsored by the University of Texas at Arlington, the sold-out event of 600 participants began with opening remarks by Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels. "Together, we will continue the collaborative efforts between OSHA and the oil and gas industry to improve safety and prevent injuries and illnesses in this industry," he said. Michaels urged attendees to participate in the agency's current rulemaking on protecting workers from crystalline silica and improving injury and illness tracking. He also met with the National Service, Transmission, Exploration & Production Safety Network, commonly known as STEPS, and applauded the successful turnout at the Nov. 14 national oil and gas safety stand down, which sought to raise awareness about industry hazards and how to prevent them.
