Safety working group seeks new members

August 18, 2020 By    

A group of energy marketer safety and compliance professionals formed a working group that will serve as a forum for safety and compliance discussions on a periodic basis.

The entity will connect peers and offer a platform to meet, exchange ideas, discuss policy initiatives and their implications, and share solutions to specific challenges common to safety and compliance professionals.

“The concept for the working group is simple,” says Dave Latourell, director of safety and transportation at Paraco Gas. “An efficient, focused, easy-to-use environment for safety and compliance fuel professionals in the propane and heating oil spaces provides a vehicle for sharing useful information we all need.”

The gatherings will be held via 30-minute video calls.

The group is reaching out to heating oil and propane retailer representatives located in, or with interests in, the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states.

Discussion topics will include but are not limited to regulatory and compliance issues stemming from the following U.S. agencies:

  • Department of Transportation
  • Department of Labor
  • Department of Energy
  • Department of Education
  • Department of Commerce
  • Department of Homeland Security

Other topics of interest include legislative initiatives on the state, federal and local levels, and judicial proceedings and decisions on the state and federal levels.

In addition to Latourell, industry members who participated in the working group’s first call include:

  • Paula Laney, director of safety and training, Energy Distribution Partners
  • Ryan Quiggle, safety and compliance director, Superior Plus Propane
  • Brian Savery; delivery, fleet and safety manager; Bourne’s Energy
  • Shane Sweet, principal, Shane Sweet LLC

Interested parties can register to join the group here. There is no cost to participate.
