Promoting the National Dialogue on Workplace Safety and Health
Participation in the alliance has helped maintain and improve the knowledge and sharing of best practices for the exploration and production field in the Ark La Tex area. In addition to the meetings covering FRCs, safe driving, H2S, slings inspection and safety, cell phone policies, cranes, and other topics, meetings on fatality trends, best practices, and new regulations were distributed to the exploration and production contractors. The group has become a distribution point for safety related classes in the area, particularly non-profit grant classes offered in the area. The meetings average approximately 40 attendees. OSHA's National Campaign for work-related Heat Stress and National Initiative for Distracted Driving were address and materials were provided to members-attendees of the monthly meeting.
The members-attendees were invited to the next ASSE Safety Expo at the Longview Maude Cobb Convention center on April 24, 2012. Also invited to the Texas Mutual Oil & Gas Symposium in Longview scheduled for May 23, 2012.
