Safety Forum - June 5-6, 2013


The National Energy Board held its 2013 Safety Forum on June 5th and 6th in Calgary, Alberta. The Forum was a key action committed to by the NEB in its Action Plan on Safety and Environmental Protection.

It was intended to:

  • facilitate dialogue on the emerging issues identified and examined in the Board’s released discussion paper, Emerging Issues in Oil and Gas Safety Management (Discussion Paper);
  • stimulate an investment of effort on these emerging issues as part of continual improvement;
  • identify opportunities that both industry and regulators can take to improve safety outcomes; and
  • generate interest in additional means for advancing discussion and change following the Forum.

This report has been prepared by the Board to capture the main themes and key points discussed amongst and made by Forum panelists. The summaries that follow are representative in nature, and acknowledge recognition, agreement, and consensus among panelists as heard at the Forum. Feedback on the Forum from participants was also incorporated. In addition, the report provides information on what lies ahead for the NEB in continually improving how it works to protect Canadians and the environment through enhancing safety in the oil and gas sector.
