Minimising Safety Hazards in Oil and Gas Operations

The oil and gas industry is governed by strict environmental, health & safety (EHS) legislation, including the HSE’s Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations, as well as the General Industry Standards and Construction Standards set out by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

But vehicle collisions, equipment faults, and explosions can happen at a moment’s notice. To minimise safety hazards, oil and gas companies must embrace digital technologies that improve risk management.

Key fact: 4 of every 10 workers killed on the job are killed as a result of a highway vehicle collision

One way technology improves process safety management is through digitally distanced surveys, remote inspections, and virtual safety training programmes, which remove workers from high-risk environments.

To identify hazards with equipment immediately, ultrasonic technology can be used to continuously monitor the performance of assets and equipment.

Another way workers can be protected from safety hazards in oil and gas operations is through gas detection systems, which identify toxic chemicals like petroleum gases, hydrogen sulfide, and mercury vapour.

Key fact: From 2013 to 2017, 489 oil and gas extraction workers were killed on the job
