Accumyn’s Ian Threadgold presented ‘The Gold Standard for Contractor Safety Management Guidance’ at the 2016 OSHA Oil & Gas Safety and Health Conference on November 29, 2016.
In his presentation, Threadgold provided insights on the best guidance documents available to use for contractor safety management in the oil and gas industry. He explained that it is critical to get more of the smaller and mid-sized US oil and gas companies and contractors using industry best practices due to the fact that in 2014 (last year data available) the US oil and gas fatality rate was over 10 times higher than the rates published for larger companies operating globally.
