About Health Safety Environmental Group
We have been where you are now. We recognize that the Regulations, the Courts, and common sense are sometimes in conflict. We have sat through mind numbing presentations and reviewed manuals that will only be used during an audit. We bring a straightforward approach to solving Health Service Environmental issues. We have experienced issues from both the Operator and Contractor perspective. Our strengths built on this knowledge coupled with our passion for excellence and a deep understanding of effective risk mitigation techniques.
We pride ourselves on prompt
and reliable service.
Our Certified Health Service Environmental professionals and Field Advisors are thoroughly trained and experienced in all aspects of our systems. Our customer service and attention to detail set industry standards for excellence.

Worker Exposure to Crystalline Silica during Hydraulic Fracturing
Inhalation of very small (respirable) crystalline silica particles puts workers at risk for silicosis, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and kidney disease. OSHA recently released a proposed rule to protect workers exposed to respirable crystalline silica. Based on sampling results, NIOSH concluded that an inhalation health hazard existed for workers exposed to crystalline silica at evaluated hydraulic fracturing sites. We recommend that all hydraulic fracturing and abrasive blasting sites evaluate their operations to determine the potential for worker exposure to crystalline silica and implement controls as necessary to protect workers.
Field Studies on Worker Exposures to Volatile Chemicals during Oil and Gas Extraction Flowback and Production Testing Operations
Workers gauging tanks can be exposed to higher than recommended levels of benzene. OSHA requires all facilities comply with the requirements and permissible exposure limits (PELs) set forth in 29 CFR 1910.1000 Table Z-2, as this standard applies to industry segments exempt from the benzene standard. For those employees exposed in excess to these limits, administrative or engineering controls must be determined and implemented whenever feasible. When controls are not feasible, personal protective equipment or other protective measures must be used to keep the exposure of employees within the prescribed limits.
Respiratory Protection Program Development and Fit Testing
According to toxicologists, the respiratory system – the lungs, trachea, throat, and mouth – is the most important route of exposure through which hazardous chemicals harm the body. Respiratory protection is the process of protecting workers against inhaling respiratory hazards. Like all control methods, engineering and administrative controls are tried first, and personal protective equipment (PPE) is chosen last when all other factors are equal.
Program development will reference US requirements, in addition to addressing your company policy. The programs are based on the following standards:
- OSHA’s standard for Respiratory Protection [29 CFR 1910.134]
- NIOSH’s Respiratory Protective Devices [42 CFR 84]
- ANSI’s Standard for Respiratory Protection [ANSI Z88.2-1992]
