New Release: Oil & Gas Industry Regulations Book

To help companies in the oil and gas industry protect employees and stay compliant with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) mandates, safety-industry publisher MANCOMM has developed and released Oil & Gas Industry: OSHA Regulations from Parts 1903, 1904, 1910, & 1926 (Product No. 36B-002). Like many MANCOMM reference works, this 720-page, 8-1/2″ x 11″ book is enhanced with RegLogic®, a colorful, graphical approach that makes reading and understanding regulations easier than ever. RegLogic® is a revolutionary, patent-pending innovation and an integral part of the MANCOMM mission – Changing the Complex into Compliance®.

Oil & Gas Industry: OSHA Regulations from Parts 1903, 1904, 1910, & 1926 covers the following OSHA regulations pertinent to land-based oil and gas industry operations:

· Part 1903: Inspections, Citations, and Proposed Penalties

· Part 1904: Recording and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illness

· Part 1910: General Industry

· Part 1926: Construction

· Letters of Interpretation

“For professionals in oil and gas, this book takes the place of several volumes of OSHA regulations,” said Benjamin Mangan, president and founder of MANCOMM. “Having so much vital information compiled in one reference work makes this book indispensable to this industry.” OSHA inspections, personal protective equipment, toxic and hazardous substances, and excavations are just a few of the many topics covered.

MANCOMM originally created the Oil & Gas Industry book for the Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), which trains workers in business, public safety, security, and more. Dr. David Schaller, a Certified Environmental Safety and Health Trainer and Certified Utility Safety Administrator with TEEX, commended the book’s versatility. “Out in the field, workers can bounce back and forth between the OSHA standards,” he said. “For example, they would need to follow the 1926 Construction regulations when preparing a drilling site, but once they start drilling, they would shift over to 1910 General Industry regulations. Either way, MANCOMM’s Oil & Gas Industry book gives them the information they need.”
Oil & Gas Industry: OSHA Regulations from Parts 1903, 1904, 1910, & 1926 would also be valuable to a wide range of companies that process or use petrochemical products. Petrochemicals are chemicals that come from hydrocarbon-based natural resources, like petroleum and natural gas. These include chemicals used as fuel, such as butane and gasoline, and other chemicals used for non-fuel purposes, including a wide variety of substances used for industrial, agricultural, and other uses.

“Within companies that work with petrochemicals, the Oil & Gas Industry book would be essential to their safety people, as well as many other professionals who deal with OSHA regulations and compliance issues,” Dr. Schaller said.

Dr. Schaller added that the RegLogic® graphical approach and comprehensive index make the book especially effective. “The information is extremely thorough, and the easy-to-read print size and innovative use of color make finding needed facts much easier,” he said.
