TULSA, OK, June 12, 2017 // AIRIS Wellsite Services is committed to the mission of a harm-free work environment. With a first-to-market solution for the hazard of respirable silica dust at frac sites, AIRIS lives its mission by assisting wellsites achieve compliance with health and safety standards.
AIRIS is proud to participate in “Safe + Sound Week,” an OSHA-sponsored effort to raise awareness of the value of workplace safety and health programs. This nationwide campaign, running June 12 through 18, promotes management leadership, worker participation, and implementation of systematic approaches in discovering and preventing workplace hazards.
“AIRIS is keenly aware of the dangers often ignored at wellsites,” says Katie Sallee, AIRIS Vice President of Operations & Controller. “Our patented technology was developed to protect the health and safety of oilfield workers; our entire mission revolves around safeguarding workers on wellsites throughout North America.”
Displaying its leadership in protecting the health of oil and gas workers, AIRIS is offering educational events and workshops throughout “Safe + Sound Week.” Topics include respiratory protection, driving safety, and how to prevent dangerous slips and trips onsite. Additionally, AIRIS is conducting hazard hunts on all job sites, along with recognizing employees who display strong efforts to promote safety.
AIRIS leads the market in understanding and responding to OSHA guidelines for worker safety. The AIRIS Total Dust Control Solution™ has successfully put numerous job sites in compliance with OSHA’s standards for respirable silica dust exposure.
Overexposure to silica dust can lead to serious health concerns like silicosis, chronic lung disease and cancer. The risk is present at virtually every frac site, and neglecting to protect oilfield workers can leave employers vulnerable to fines and lawsuits.
“We help all E&P companies and pressure pumpers achieve their goals for workplace safety, just as we seek to champion the lives and health of each and every valued member of our industry,” adds Sallee.
