OSHA Renews Alliance with Permian Basin STEPS Network
The alliance supports an improved safety culture for oil and gas workers in Texas
OSHA and the Permian Basin STEPS network are renewing a 2008 alliance to address exposure to hazardous chemicals and increase safety culture in the oil and gas industry, according to a report. The alliance will allow both groups to receive safety and health guidance, access training, and best practices on a three-year term.
"Since 2008, the Permian Basin Service, Transmission, Exploration and Production Safety Network has been an excellent partner of the agency, communicating safety and health information to their stakeholders in the oil and gas industry and supporting OSHA's initiatives for workplace safety," said Diego Alvarado Jr., OSHA's Area Director in El Paso. "By recommitting to our collaborative efforts, we strengthen our ability to promote workplace safety and health and we have the ability to reach out to individuals working in the oil and gas industry."
