Safety is and will always be the industry’s primary focus, and the workers who serve on the front lines of our operations play an essential role in ensuring safe work practices and preventing workplace incidents. Each worker at a worksite has a duty to work in a safe manner and must make safety a part of each and every task.
该行业采取了许多措施来强调工人安全的重要性，并不断改进其运营中的安全做法。天然气和石油行业在降低全国工作场所伤害和疾病发生率方面有着令人印象深刻且不断改善的记录。根据美国劳工统计局（Bureau of Labor Statistics）的最新报告，2006年至2015年，美国天然气和石油行业的伤病率下降了45%，尽管新增了数千个就业岗位，但仍远低于美国整个私营部门的全国平均水平。
Each worksite is unique and safety measures need to be site and job specific. Individual companies employ industrial hygienists and safety professionals to prepare site-specific job safety assessments (JSA) before work begins. They are tasked with communicating potential work hazards, ensuring their workers are properly trained and stressing the awareness of safety within their organizations.
