Experts to discuss human error issue in safety management


fire-in-paris-science-museumSafety issues affecting the oil and gas industry in particular and production industry/households in general would be the focus of a conference scheduled to hold on April 25 to 27, next year in Houston, Texas, U.S.A.

The forum, titled “Oil and Gas Safety Conference OGSC 2016” is being organised by RGT Media Communications Corporation, in partnership with the Independent Petroleum Association of America. Safety statistics shows that hardly a month goes by without incident reports in the oil and gas industry.

The organisers noted that recently, the Caspian Sea Oil Rig burst out in flames and 29 lives are missing, with a heighten risk of spill.

Also of note was the tragic incident at the Samarco iron ore operation in Minas Gerais, Brazil, where 13 fatalities and six people who remain unaccounted for. As a result of the high volume of sand and clay tailings material that moved through the river system, a large number of fish died due to reduced oxygen uptake.

To address these issues and more, the OGSC 2016 has lined up experts to discuss the solutions to these issues.

The resource persons include Executive Director, Pegasus Risk Management, Peter V. Bridle, Professor of Technology HSE and Learning and Development HCC and Lone Star College, Enrique J. Rodriguez; Director of Government Relations and Political Affairs, IPAA, Ryan Ullman; Commissioner, Texas Railroad Commission, Ryan Sitton; Senior Inspection Affairs Engineer, NIGC, Akbar Doostaregan; and Regional Coordinator, GGFR, World Bank, Francisco J. Sucre.

Briddle had noted that “rather than implementing simple, one-time corrective actions such as rewriting a policy or procedure or developing a new training course, corrective actions should fundamentally change the way safety performance is measured and rewarded.
