ItemArctic Offshore Oil and Gas Guidelines. Systems Safety Management and Safety Culture. Avoiding Major Disasters in Arctic Offshore Oil and Gas Operations.(Protection of the Arctic Marine Environment (PAME), 2014-03) Protection of the Arctic Marine Environment (PAME)The Arctic Offshore Oil and Gas Guidelines (AOOGG): Systems Safety Management and Safety Culture, was organized as a project under the Protection of the Arctic Marine Environment (PAME) Working Group of the Arctic Council. The project was led by the United States. The work was reviewed and comments received at the biannual meetings of the PAME Working Group. In addition, input was received from two expert workshops in Keflavik, Iceland in June 2012, held jointly with the Recommended Practices for Prevention of Pollution (RP3) workshop by the Emergency Preparedness, Prevention and Response (EPPR) Working Group, and in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada in September 2012. Written comments were also received from many individuals and organizations including a wide range of representatives from Arctic governments, non-governmental organizations, industry, indigenous people, and the scientific community. This Guidance document has been circulated widely to Arctic States, Permanent Participants and Observers, as well as academia, non-profit environmental and industry associations, and other stakeholders and has also had the benefit of editing by a professional writer/editor. The project lead would like to thank all PAME countries, other Arctic Council working groups and Permanent Participants to the Arctic Council, experts and other stakeholders for their support and contributions to this work. ItemHealth Safety and Environmental Management Systems(Arctic Council's Protection of the Arctic Marine Environment Working Group (PAME), 2013) Protection of the Arctic Marine Environment (PAME)PAME held a Health Safety and Environmental Management Systems (HSEMS) Workshop in Keflavik, Iceland 10-12 June. The agenda of the workshop was coordinated with the related EPPR Recommended Practices for Prevention oil Pollution (RP3) workshop also held in Keflavik 11-12 June to facilitate the opportunity for oil and gas experts to attend and contribute to both workshops. The meeting was attended by 22 people and featured 10 invited presentations.Attendees included representatives from the U.S. National Academy of Engineering, PAME, EPPR, indigenous peoples organizations, national coast guards, environmental protection offshore oil and gas regulatory agencies, academia, and oil and gas associations. The HSE workshop began the 10th of June with presentations on topics such as Deepwater Horizon assessments and investigations, offshore drilling, and the national Health Safety and Environment (HSE) management systems currently in place in Norway, Greenland, United States and Canada and the HSE sections of the Arctic Council Offshore Oil and Gas Guidelines, 2009. During day two, the background and status of the EPPR RP3 project was presented along with the PAME HSEMS project.
