Peru to ‘eliminate’ key environmental rule for oil and gas firms, says minister

Peru to ‘eliminate’ key environmental rule for oil and gas firms, says minister | OHS High Risk Workplace Safety Solutions | Scoop.it
“David Hill: Announcement that seismic tests won’t require Environmental Impact Assessments sparks controversy and concern (Peru casually ends key safety regulation for oil and gas drilling.”
Tomas Haerewa's insight:
A timely topic faced in Queensland today and widening to pockets of rural Australia, in the continuous search for oil and gas reserves. Seismic testing is commonly accepted as a more hazardous method of testing. Along with the environmental and cultural impacts being greater and more damaging. By not enforcing a consultation process, a dangerous precedent is being set for financial return above social, cultural and environmental responsibilities.

Influence-Training

I have scooped this after reading chapter 3 of the BoK (OHS body of Knowledge) The-generalist-OHS-professional.

I was amazed to read that the generalist OHS practitioner was not highly regarded and had a relatively convoluted understanding by management and industry as a whole. The harmonization of legislation and the streamlining of OHS training is an important step in the evolution of positive safety outcomes.

I am a firm believer in life long learning at all levels. I have come from a trade background. I understand the pressures put on maintenance and production personnel. I also understand that a business has to make money. So as a Safety professional, you often find yourself as the proverbial piggy in the middle. I support and encourage training, not just read and regurgitate, but real embedding of safety principles that become second nature. Often this takes guts to challenge the hearts and minds of not only the work group, but Supervisors, Superintendents and Managers as well.

Tomas Haerewa's insight:
Water consumption and contamination are key factors which should be considered, discussed and addressed at each unique location. In a land as drought prone as Australia, more information and controls need to be made readily available to all concerned stakeholders and parties.
