Friday, 02 February, 2007

The Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association (APPEA) claims to be increasing its focus on safety with the appointment of a senior safety adviser.

Tim McGrath will join APPEA's Perth office from the National Offshore Petroleum Safety Authority, where he was an occupational health and safety inspector.

McGrath also spent time at the University of Western Australia where he was a senior lecturer in the School of Oil & Gas Engineering.

APPEA chief executive, Belinda Robinson said McGrath's appointment underscores the organisation's commitment to excellence in safety performance.

"Safety is a crucial aspect of the exploration and development of oil and gas in Australia. The industry is determined to achieve continual improvement in safety of both people and processes," she said.

"McGrath will play a crucial role in driving APPEA's safety initiatives and enhancing the industry's reputation as a global safety leader."
