One of the most important safety initiatives facing landside oil and gas is sitting on a desk at the White House awaiting review. A special multi-agency task force presented recommendations to the Administration in late spring, including a recommendation that the OSHA safety rules known as Process Safety Management be applied to upstream oil and gas.
I recently authored an article for the Association of Energy Service Companies’ (AESC) Well Servicing Magazine that looks at the background of the PSM proposal and where it goes from here. You can access the article here.
Incidentally, if you find the article valuable, you might want to subscribe to AESC’s Well Servicing Magazine. It is a valuable source of information about the issues affecting the landside oil and gas industry. Subscriptions are free and you can access the sign-up here.
