In an effort to increase safety in the oil and gas industry, the Wyoming Occupational Safety and Health Administration will officially set forth an alliance with the Wyoming oil and gas industry, which will be sanctioned by Governor Matt Mead this Wednesday.
Wyoming Department of Workforce Services Director Joan Evans comments on the alliance.
The Wyoming Oil & Gas Industry Safety Alliance is comprised of oil and gas employers throughout the state, including producers, drillers, service companies, support activities and others.
In addition to education efforts, the alliance will form better communication between Wyoming OSHA and the industry safety and health professionals.
Both organizations will meet at least three times a year to track and share information on activities and results in achieving the goals of the Alliance. The agreement will remain in effect for two years.
