The oil and gas industry is one of the riskiest industries when it comes to the health and safety of employees. Interruptions in oil production caused by fires or accidents can lead to significant economic losses along with potential hazards to people and the environment. In oil refineries, exposure to Benzene and Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) can create serious health risks. And throughout the industry, numerous activities including chemical use for processes such as drilling, cementing, completion, stimulation and production can all create highly dangerous environments for workers and bystanders. If you’re planning a major project for a company in the oil and gas industry, or if you need standby rescue services for your business, call CS Consulting today!
Rescue Services for Oil and Gas Companies
CS Consulting is proud to be one of the few companies in the country to offer rescue standby services for confined space entry, large hazardous projects, fall protection, and other hazardous scenarios in a variety of industries, including the oil and gas industry. OSHA requirements state that any time a job requires workers to make entry on a permit-required confined space, or whenever personnel are required to utilize personal fall arrest systems, a rescue plan must be included in the planning process that allows for a timely rescue of personnel. In addition to these situations, it is also a good idea to take emergency precautions in hazardous situations, such as a plant or refinery shutdown.
