  4. Evaluations

    This alliance is a good means of documenting activities that help promote compliance with federal labor laws. Francis Tuttle Technology Center hosts the monthly MCEPS meetings for the Oil & Gas industry alliance and facilitates the meetings. They also are a source for training for emerging safety & health issues being experienced in the industry. Due to the low number of fatalities in the industry and the industry downturn in activity this past year there were no emerging issues identified for training, but there have been some identified currently in the new year and this relationship is important to maintain.

    This alliance played a key role in providing stakeholders very informative information from five Department of Labor agencies this year in one location. This DOL forum training was accomplished with the assistance of Francis Tuttle Technology Center venue and training aids.
