As environmental and compliance lead for an oil and gas client, ensure the health and safety of more than 65 field personnel working across a multi-state region during spill response activities. Responsibilities included oversight of environmental compliance audits/inspections of cleanup, support, vessel deployment, waste transfer, and staging sites for marine and land remediation under extreme heat and unpredictable weather patterns working in a seven-day-per week emergency response mode.


Safety measures implemented included simplifying the process and responsibilities of all field personnel that had to conduct a considerable amount of travel between sites to conduct field compliance audits. Implemented a severe weather policy for traveling and auditing, along with a rest policy to ensure all inspectors were well rested and able to perform the prescribed duties.


Successfully managed the project for 3 years and 1 month of activity with no recorded injuries or safety incidents among staff.
