Full Description

It is well known that current oil and gas exploration and production activities are rendering significant gains to the US economy as evidenced by increased household incomes, progress in energy independence, as well as trade and job creation. But hydraulic fracturing and drilling is only part of the story; chemical production, transportation, environmental management and other related sectors are also booming.

In spite of the immense positive impacts, this historic energy (and economic) revolution has created significant occupational safety challenges. Injuries and fatalities, exposure to hazardous chemicals, transportation incidents, etc. are just some of the few.

This presentation will review occupational safety statistics, incident root-causes, areas of increased risk and, most importantly, will present and discuss lessons learned and corrective actions. It will also review innovative (and successful) best management practices created and followed by the industry to mitigate the negative impacts that get in the way of reaching safe and sustainable oil and gas exploration and production activities.
