SPOT on Safety
Safety Practices in the Oil & Gas Industry
EHS Today is an award-winning occupational safety and health magazine. Published monthly by Penton Media, it is the leading US magazine for environmental, health and safety management professionals in the manufacturing, construction, and service sectors.
Their former content director, Sandy Smith, published the following article early last year and at SPOT, we believe in sharing great information with our clients, even if it means we didn’t write it. There’s plenty of competition in the oil & gas industry, but we’re all on the same team when it comes to safety.
“The oil and gas industry, potentially one of the most hazardous industry sectors in the United States, has one of the most thorough safety programs. The combination of powerful equipment, flammable chemicals and processes that are under high pressure can lead to hazardous and even deadly incidents. That’s why it’s essential for safety managers and supervisors to identify and communicate recommended safety controls and hazards that exist on each work site before work begins.
Graphic Products knows it’s essential for safety managers and supervisors to have the resources they need for optimal safety operations, so the company has released several visual communication resources specifically tailored for the oil and gas industry that include a safety best practices guide, quick safety tip articles, this informative infographic and more.”
