Occupational Safety and Health Administration Oil and Gas Industry

OSHA along with other Federal agencies schedule meeting to discuss performance-based approaches to protect oil and gas industry workers

WASHINGTON – The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), along with the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, United States Coast Guard, Environmental Protection Agency, and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration invite public participation in a September 20-21 meeting on the use and implementation of performance-based regulatory models for enhanced safety and environmental performance in the United States oil and gas industry.

Speakers at the September 20-21 meeting in Texas City, Texas will address the current regulatory landscape and discuss the challenges and benefits of non-prescriptive, outcome-based approaches to reduce the frequency and severity of harmful events.

Public attendees will have the opportunity to make comments at the meeting and all members of the public may submit comments in writing. Those interested in attending must register online by September 5. The meeting will also be Webcast live for online viewing. For more information, visit the registration website and read the Federal Register notice.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA’s role is to ensure these conditions for America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education and assistance. For more information, visit
