ASSE Oil & Gas Practice Specialty Sharing Expertise
The new group has created committees representing upstream, midstream/pipeline, downstream, and international, and another committee will evaluate content for upcoming conferences and mini-symposia, Administrator Michael Farris writes in its latest online magazine.
The ASSE Oil & Gas Practice Specialty has settled on its structure and a group of committees to serve its growing, multinational membership, with committees formed to represent upstream, midstream/pipeline, downstream, and international. Another committee will evaluate content for upcoming conferences and mini-symposia, Administrator Michael Farris writes in the latest edition of its online Well-Informed magazine.
The magazine includes articles about fall protection, hydrogen sulfide, struck-by hazards, and the American Petroleum Institute's WorkSafe program for onshore oil & gas exploration and production operations safety. The program originated with the creation in 2007 of an API task group and produced a training program, free handbook, and exam by Dec. 31, 2008. These are available by registering at its website.
ASSE posted information about the group on its homepage this week. In his welcome message in the 32-page magazine issue, Farris invites EH&S professionals in the industry to join the committees, write articles, "share a learning experience from your shop or simply voice your opinion."
The Oil & Gas Practice Specialty already has LinkedIn and Facebook sites in operation.
