OSHA and DJ Basin Safety Council renew alliance

OSHA and the DJ Basin Safety Council have recently renewed alliance to provide oil and gas industry workers in northern Colorado with information, guidance and training to improve the industry’s safety culture.

“OSHA and the DJ Basin Safety Council will continue to work together to identify and eliminate hazardous conditions to ensure the region’s oil and gas industry workers are protected,” said Herb Gibson, OSHA’s Area Director in Denver.

“Our alliance allows us to distribute important safety and health information, such as hazard alerts on hot work performed on tanks, hydrocarbon exposure during tank gauging, fire explosion, falls, struck by hazards, and transportation hazards.”

Through the Alliance Program, OSHA works with businesses, trade associations, unions, consulates, professional organizations, faith and community-based organizations, and educational institutions to prevent workplace fatalities, injuries, and illnesses.
