In recent years, the oil and gas industry has been perhaps the most dynamic realm of the occupational safety and health world. This results from the many and varied health and safety risks confronting workers and operations in oil and gas extraction, processing, storage and transportation; and several disastrous incidents, the most publicized of course the Deepwater Horizon tragedy. But from tragedy and near misses as well as organizational leadership commitment and significant investments in occupational safety and health have come cutting-edge best practices. These include safety and health management systems, organizational safety and health cultures, and the use of new safety and health technologies. Further best practices include a focus on contractor and vehicle safety, distracted driving, job stress and fatigue, man-down alerts, emergency preparedness, employee engagement, auditing and root causal analyses, toxic exposures, global supply chains, sustainability, process change management, and human performance.

All of these safety and health issues and best practices have applications far beyond the oil and gas industry. ISHN magazine’s circulation goes to safety and health professionals in vertical industries ranging from construction and mining, food processing and heavy manufacturing, to utilities, distribution operations, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and technology-driven businesses. Safety and health pros in all these diverse workplaces can benefit from the best practices and lessons learned in the oil and gas industry. Reaching out to these professionals with practical content that they can use on the job immediately is the purpose of this eBook. ISHN thanks all the subject-matter experts who contributed articles, and the ISHN staff editors who researched, analyzed, organized and wrote concise, relevant articles.

I’m sure you’ll find this eBook to be a valuable asset in reviewing safety and health practices and technologies in the oil and gas industry, and find applications for them in your own enterprises.
