The PESA HSE Committee focuses throughout the year on legislation or regulations that impact PESA member companies and/or their customers in the areas of health, safety and environment. This committee also works on independent research projects for publication by PESA.
One of the issues the committee addressed in 2016 was the EPA Region 4 and Region 6 permit language used by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for these regions. The committee worked collaboratively to develop language which was more accurate for specific topics in the permits and was able to provide comments to the EPA for their review.
In 2017 the committee will identify key HSE issues companies are facing. One focal point already identified by the committee is the importance of safety record keeping and documentation, how to collect and house that information and, in turn, present the results to members in a meaningful way. The PESA HSE Committee’s goals are to ensure that companies in the oil and gas industry are furthering HSE priorities, sharing best practices, identifying ways to improve and potentially implementing safety programs. Companies involved in the HSE Committee are Baker Hughes, FairfieldNodal, Halliburton, Hoover, Newpark, PwC, R.A.K.I Computers, Ringers Gloves, Schlumberger, Stream-Flo, and Weir Oil & Gas.
