On Sept. 26 and 27, the Permanent Fund Safety Committee was invited to attend two days of the Growth Fund’s Safety Environmental Compliance Management Group (SECMG) Environmental Health & Safety Retreat at the Sky Ute Casino Resort in Ignacio.

The Safety Committee had the privilege to sit in on several sessions that covered a wide variety of environmental health and safety topics such as, “Training – Thinking Outside of the Box,” presented by Dan Jefferson, Red Cedar Gathering Company; “Cause Mapping Method for Problem Solving, Incident Investigation & Root Cause Analysis,” presented by Ray Lehr, Red Willow Production Company; “Hearing Conservation & Benzene Standards,” presented by Dylan Romo, Lockton Companies; “Air Quality Enforcement Action: Consequences & Settlements,” presented by Sarah Kelly, Virgil Frazier, Ethan Hinkley and Steve Folk, and many more.

In gratitude the PF Safety Committee would like to thank Vice Chairman Mike Olguin, Executive Officer Steven Herrera Sr., Growth Fund Executive Director Bruce Valdez, SECMG Regulatory Compliance Manager Lynn Woomer, and the rest of the Growth Fund for giving us the honor to be a part of such a wonderful retreat.
