The Association of Energy Service Companies (AESC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) renewed an alliance designed to help protect oil and gas well servicing industry employees.
The three-year alliance renewal will continue to focus on reducing and preventing exposure to well servicing hazards and provide training resources for member companies and employees.
Through the alliance, AESC provided hazard training, developed hazard alerts on mobile engines and hot work, and update OSHA’s Oil and Gas Well Drilling and Servicing e-Tool that identifies common workplace safety hazards and potential remedies.
“Our alliance with AESC has enabled us to expand our compliance assistance and training efforts in the oil and gas industry,” said OSHA Dallas-area Regional Administrator Kelly Knighton. “Together, we will continue to raise awareness among industry employers and employees of the importance of workplace safety.”
Through its Alliance Program, OSHA fosters collaborative relationships with groups committed to worker safety and health, such as trade and professional organizations, unions, consulates, faith- and community-based organizations, businesses, and educational institutions, to prevent workplace fatalities, injuries, and illnesses.
