Subject: Unique Safety Considerations for Work on Offshore Platforms
  Offshore PlatformWorkplace safety and safety concerns have been big news for quite some time now.  It seems that not a week goes by without some news of a significant industrial workplace accident or incident. Every workplace environment now either has a full fledged safety program of their own or a well defined set of procedures, rules and guidelines to address safety in their workplace. Offshore platforms such as the ones in place off the coast of Newfoundland present very unique requirements for personnel and workplace safety.  Their remote locations, the harsh/hazardous environments, and the difficulty in removing personnel in case of an emergency make them a most interesting and challenging safety concern.

This presentation will explore the safety concerns and challenges posed by offshore platforms and the various procedures and practices in place to reduce the risks
Speaker: Tim Czepiel   -   Field Service Representative   -   ABB Canada
  ABBTim Cziepel has significant experience in designing and upgrading process automation systems and instrumentation.  In his role as an ABB field service representative, Tim has been an integral part of several offshore platform projects and will draw on this experience and expertise for our presentation
