WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) will host the 2015 International Regulators’ Forum (IRF) Offshore Safety Conference: “Risk Reduction: From Desktop to Deck Plate,” on October 19-20, at the Liaison Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. Registration for the event is now open HERE.
The IRF 2015 Offshore Safety Conference will focus on moving safety in the offshore petroleum industry from concepts discussed in the boardroom to effective implementation out in the field. It will provide a forum for industry, regulators, citizen stakeholders and practitioners to openly discuss best practices and industry trends.
This year, the IRF conference will feature speakers and panelists across several different industries to discuss a holistic approach to risk reduction in the offshore oil and gas sector. The agenda has been developed to provide participants with an engaging and interactive experience that provides new inspiration for implementing risk reduction strategies offshore.
The IRF is the international forum of offshore petroleum health and safety regulators whose members are dedicated to the common cause of raising offshore health and safety standards. Member countries include Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Regulatory officials from all nations with ongoing or proposed offshore oil and gas activity are invited to attend the conference, as are offshore industry representatives, health and safety professionals, members of the academic community and the general public. BSEE Director Brian Salerno encourages everyone interested in reducing risk offshore to participate in the conference: “This year’s IRF conference will focus on a holistic approach to risk management – from desktop to deck plate, and BSEE is very excited to host the forum with an eye on moving the discussion of safety from concepts to effective implementation.”
