OSHA Announces National Safety 'Step-Up' for Upstream Industry

The Step-Up through the end of March aims to protect workers at oil and gas exploration sites.

OSHA has announced the 2016 Step-Up for Safety in the Upstream Oil and Gas Industry to raise awareness about hazards in oil and gas exploration activities. The Step-Up is an activity of the alliance between OSHA, the National Service, Transmission, Exploration & Production Safety (STEPS) Network, and NIOSH.

OSHA reported 22 regional STEPS Networks will coordinate and promote the events, including conducting site inspections, safety training and other activities, from mid-February through the end of March.

"Hazardous working conditions are taking the lives of a growing number of workers employed in oil and gas extraction," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels. "This safety step-up will help emphasize the tremendous value in dedicating time during a workday to improve safety and health."
